Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Drug Reduction

Drugs and drug abuse have greatly affected, our communities. Mostly people involve themselves in drug abuse due to peer pressure and depression. Depression comes in when problems/challenges are more than solutions. The drug affect the people using them hence they become useless in the community. The government has been advocating for reduction in drug abuse and the results are visible. There is a positive outcome since youths are comming out in large numbers to get rehabilitated and treated so that they lead normal lives without the use of drugs. More appeal should be made to the youths who are remaining to get out of drugs to be rehabilitated so that they become useful to the community. More organization therefore need to come in and offer support to the rehabilitation centers.
