Drug abuse prevention through youth work

Published on 06.07.2019 at 14:49

Stand Against Drugs is a project that seeks to develop essential concepts, attitudes and skills of universal drug abuse prevention programmes or interventions through youth work to make great strides in developing both the knowledge and tools that can stem the tide of drug abuse and curb its devastating effects on youth.

 

Drugs harm and effect people other than the abusers, be whether through violence on the street, sexual and domestic violence in the family, or simply using government resources dealing with crimes and disorder. Thus, increased empowerment and awareness about the effects of drug abuse can mitigate the impact of drug abuse on economic downturns and reduce alcohol and drugs-related deaths.

 

So far, the project has empowered 60 youth workers from partners countries with skills/tools to create and plan learning opportunities and conditions for empowerment on the effects of drug abuse on youth mental health and well-being. Further, they acquired skills in creating counter drug abuse messages and promoting drug abuse prevention through counter-narratives campaigns.

 

We thus, apply empowerment as a framework to improve youth work practices in ways that build on the strengths of the society to reduce harmful consequences of drug abuse. We aim to improve youth workers capacities and skills to focus beyond the individual level of analysis and design interventions to risk factors affecting the well-being of young people most vulnerable to drug abuse.
