phenomenon, that most us has got used it. The numbers of the victims
more and more increase rapidly in such a degree that makes us shudder.
Prospectively, there was an alarming increase in drug abuse at our college.
Many students take cocaine, heroine, LSD, hash, crack, and other drugs;
all these illegal substances provoke undeniably addiction.
The reasons that led to that accrual are various. Firstly, the alienated
interpersonal relationships has decreased the esoteric communication
between people. The hostile environment of the megalopolis has worsen
the communicational impasse and has attacked the psychic equilibrium of
individuals. Secondly, the faulty function of the family; the chasm
between them, turns young people to other types of ‘families’ of the
demiworld. Even overprotection some times makes them ask for a
gateway. Thirdly, the imitation of musicians and actors can lead many
young people to drugs, as they are trying to look alike them. Nevertheless,
as we now, today all this staff about being ‘cool’, affects mostly young
people and it is more obvious in places where there are many gathered,
like in college. Moreover, another reason can be the fact of the
provocative easiness to find drugs in college, whenever and whatever drug
you want. Finally, a disappointment from a relationship or school, for
example a fail in the finals, can be a good reason for those young people to
turn in to drugs.
For this bad situation that exists in our college, counselors and teachers
have to undertake control. They have to inform and consult students about
the danger of taking drugs. Also, college besides of education has to try to
nourish a positive personality. This will succeed with the existence of
corporation between students and teachers, the reinforcement of activity
leading, the growth of positive thinking and ensurance of freely expression
of students. Teachers and counselors have to penetrate into young people’s
problems and try to help them, by showing to them that they care and they
are willing to help them. In addition, an introduction of a club with the
corporation of teachers and students with an ulterior target to talk about
problems that are annoying them organizing exhibitions that will inform
substantially about dangers of drug abuse, visiting centers of detoxification
to see with their own eyes the truth about drugs.
Hence, young people constitute the warranty for a better future.
Consequently, every investment of love and care we to them it will
attribute in the future. None of our tries will go to the trash.
