To solve this problem from the roots, we need to start talking about the problem and educating our communities about the factors contributing to drug addiction and addiction prevention.

To combat behaviors related to substance abuse, we must provide all people with the tools they need to make the right choices and steer clear of addiction, especially younger generations. It is possible—and necessary—to impart education in the home, at school, among friends, and wherever else is possible.

Whenever possible, drug abuse prevention must start within the family unit.

Home-based drug prevention education is known to have many obvious benefits, such as self-awareness, improving parent-child communication skills, and strengthening family bonding. Parents must supervise and be involved with their adolescents.

 It is not only important for parents to establish and enforce family rules to educate their children about the dangers of drug abuse, but also to educate themselves about the dangers of drug use. Among their responsibilities is making sure their children’s activities are monitored effectively.

The prevention of drug abuse can be significantly improved when communities come together to fight drug abuse. Several sites can be used for the implementation of prevention programs, including schools, churches, and community organizations.

Preschool is a good time to begin addressing drug abuse prevention. The preschool years are an ideal time for children to learn to deal with aggression, solve problems, and communicate better, thus preventing them from suffering from drug addiction down the road.

Also, middle and high school programs should use peer relationships, communication, drug resistance skills, and anti-drug attitudes as main focuses. The best way to ensure success with school-based prevention programs is to repeat them frequently.

In conclusion, more awareness on the hazards and dangers of addiction should be given to the public. People should be sensitized on what they are getting themselves into by being a victim of addiction and help should be made available for those that need it.
