Question and answer
Eight ways in which drugs impact on the community
The increasing abuse of drugs by youth and its impact upon the community are discussed. Some young people use drugs as a substitute for psychological or physical help or as a means to be "in". [ There are many other reasons for drug abuse depending on the predisposition and motives involved and these are summarized. To comprehend the present trend in the illicit use of drugs one needs to understand adolescent dynamics. Although they have physiologically acquired the capacities of adults they are socially treated as children and not allowed to demonstrate their independence in all spheres.
Consequently much of the adolescents behavior is an expression of his effort to achieve some degree of freedom from parents. Todays young people are extremely uneasy in our achievement oriented society and are trying to search for self discovery through involvement with drugs since our institutions are not solving their basic identity needs. Because of the deleterious effects of drugs on human beings and society we must find the solution to drug abuse. In most cases, drug users have deep emotional and psychological problems and thus should be helped instead of ostracized by the law and society. ]
