SADs-project introduced youth workers to the concepts of universal drug abuse prevention programmes through youth work in order 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 young people and on the community as a whole.
Partners grasped the complex challenges of drug abuse on a youth social, educational, cultural and personal development and became familiar with the multiple forms of universal drug abuse prevention program; develop sustainable solutions to address drug problems and their social consequences: weak parenting, school drop-outs, unsafe sexual practices, sexual and domestic violence, etc.
Since these daunting drug problems are likely to be paired with any number of other difficulties in youth and adult lives; thus, how can young people be educated and empowered to reduce and prevent them from abusing drugs? What are their special needs and what kind of drug abuse prevention programs can help them? And what are the learning needs of those facilitating youth empowerment?
