Signs and Symptoms of Substance Use Addiction

Every 3rd Week of November is Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week!

Dubbed “Addressing Drug Challenges in Health and Humanitarian Crises #CareInCrises”, this year’s event emphasizes the importance of combating disinformation campaigns about illegal drugs that can harm the public.

This is a vital call to action to mitigate the negative impact of false information, bolter public’s knowledge to make them less susceptible to the myths and inaccuracies surrounding illegal drugs, and intensify their resilience against the influence of drug use.

The observance also promotes public awareness against the evil effects of illegal drug use and to encourage public cooperation in the anti-drug campaign.

So, let us know the signs and symptoms of substance use addiction. And together, let’s help a person recover from drug dependency. Say no to drugs!
