PREVENTION AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS
-for parents and children aged 13-17 years  - three days a week (Friday-Sunday).

The first task for parents to accomplish is to get to know all the characteristics of the period of adolescence their children will inevitably go through, they should also get to know all the drugs which are being offered to children as we speak, to understand their effects and negative consequences of their use and they should also be aware of the situations in which using drugs usually happens.

The next step is to pass your knowledge about drugs and their effects onto your children, and to use your authority for helping them form their own negative attitude towards drugs and people using them.

Children should always know what they’re doing, that is very important. This means that they are properly educated and that they have formed a negative attitude towards drugs.

The most important message a parent has to send to his or her children is that drugs are extremely dangerous, that using them results in becoming seriously ill and that this illness is very difficult to cure. Drugs cannot be an area of your children’s interest.

Teach your children about the damages caused by drugs as soon as possible and do not let them be misinformed by drug abusers, because they are bound to be offered drugs!

The usual adolescent delusions

“What’s the problem with smoking marijuana? But, it’s just marijuana.” or “It’s just alcohol.” or they often say: “It’s just a phase I’m going through”, “Everyone’s doing it”, “Teenagers are expected to be open for trying out new things”. Not anymore, as the world has changed, and so have drugs. In fact, marijuana is stronger today than it has ever been before. Drugs and alcohol lead to many negative consequences; the mind and body of an adolescent are still developing and substance abuse can result in hindering personal development and making it difficult for adolescents to form their identities.

Experimenting with marijuana can also lead to addiction. Not everyone becomes an addict, but this road is a very dangerous one and there’s no way we can know for certain who’s going to become an addict and who’s not. A certain percentage of adolescents goes through experimenting with substances as a phase, while for others it represents the experimental phase – their introduction to illness.

An early education and becoming aware of the real extent of the problem are powerful weapons in fighting drug abuse. Attitudes and beliefs can be formed very early. The skills learned during childhood will prevent children from making the wrong decision in critical moments.

Teach your children about the damages caused by drugs as soon as possible and do not let them be misinformed by drug abusers, because they are bound to be offered drugs!
Kids who start experimenting with drugs at the age of 16 or under are at greater risk of becoming addicts than those who try drugs at the age of 22 or more. This is the actual trend in our society – “adolescents” are starting to experiment very early.

Do not gamble with your children’s future
