Abu Dhabi Centre for Legal and Community Awareness expands scope of anti-drug campaign
emirates7 - The anti-drug awareness campaign, launched by "Masouliya", the Abu Dhabi Community Legal Awareness Centre at the Judicial Department, has been expanded to include the display of educational materials and awareness films at commercial centres in Abu Dhabi, to reach different segments of society, enhance knowledge about these risks, and prevent people from falling prey to abuse and addiction.
This is part of the continuous efforts to achieve the objectives of the expanded campaign, which was launched last May and will continue for six months, in implementation of the directives of H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Presidential Court, and Head of the Judicial Department in Abu Dhabi, to consolidate legal culture and disseminate community awareness, to support security and stability and protect the community.
In this context, the campaign focuses on clarifying the reasons leading to the abuse of narcotic substances, whether related to individual reasons for the abuser, family reasons such as familial disintegration, or societal reasons such as lack of awareness of the legislation and laws of this act, with reference to the effects of the abuse, whether related to mental health such as sleep disturbance, delusions, anxiety, depression, tension, and introversion, or physical health effects, such as heart trouble, general fatigue, headaches and pneumonia.
The awareness campaign also focuses on preventing and recovering from the scourge of drug and psychotropic substance abuse. It sheds light on the indications and the consequences, in addition to introducing the legal and legislative aspects, and showing ways to help the addict receive treatment without being brought to court. It highlights the role of parents and how they should react when one of the children falls victim to drug use, through care and continuous follow-up to support rehabilitation programmes.
