Teenage Drug Abuse

Teenage drug use is a big concern for parents in todays society, especially those leaving in slam areas. An organisation known as H.Y.S ( Help Youth service) in kiada slamcame up with a project on ways to help and educate Teenage on how to be away from drugs. They observed the two primary causes of teenage drug abuse that is: 1. Peer pressure- lack of emloyment, money influence from friends has contributed to drug abuse. 2 Depression- Being underated/ lacking parental love from guardians, parents,friends or family members has also contri- buted most to drugs abuse. It was observed that the only ways or way to prevent teenage from druguse or abuses is: 1. He/she should avoid wrong/bad companies 2. Being creative & help come up with talents to help themselves 3. Avoid lonely places and help parents at home 4. Respect parents guardians,society and family members. 5. Creating jobs to those who are idle I take this oportunity to thank the (H.Y.S) organisation for most of the youths are using their time wisel and have engaged themselves by taking responsibilities to be away from drugs and keeping themselvesbusy and educating others on how to be away from drugs.
