Education is the best solution to South Africa’s drug problem

Every year, research shows that more and more young people are not only being exposed to drugs but falling victim to its deadly grasp. No one questions the severity of the drug problem and its devastating impact on youth.

Academic results suffer and, even worse, drugs undermine health and destroy young lives.

At Eden Recovery Centre, we believe that the best solution is to reach young people with effective, fact-based drug education—before they start experimenting with drugs. Tweens, teens and young adults who know the facts about drugs are much less likely to start using them.

Digital is the way of the future and parents should use this to their advantage. There are many online education website that provide full Truth About Drugs Education materials at your fingertips, and contains practical tools to educate young people about substance abuse.
