Drug Abuse, A Social Ill Among Youths Especially School Children

Kenneth Ubani

Abstract


The use of hard drugs or substance abuse among the youths is growing both in arithmetic and geometric proportions especially among school children. One of the major reasons is exposure to the drugs. Examples have been sited with cases in the media. It is alarming that the very young age, the minors are involved. It is gruesome when a child of eight, nine or ten years do or discuss hard drugs. It runs across the three stages of the educational systems: the primary, secondary and the tertiary schools. This article looks at the implications, medical realities in drug abuse and ways of reducing or maintaining a school atmosphere without narcotics, with tips on quitting and recommendations.
