How Parents and Care givers can identify Drug and substance abuse among their wards and children; common place phenomenon among natives

by Dr James Komolafe


Our society today is riddled with drug and substance abuse across all meaningful demography without abating. The wave of tramadol, Refnol and other psychoactive substances ingested per day without wave is reaching an astronomical height in our society. This malaise explains the rationale behind widespread violence, insurgency and all sorts of bad behaviour in the society. People take to drugs illegitimately because of so many reasons. The havoc associated with drug is enormous and that determines a whole lot in the nation.

THE United Nations, UN, Tuesday told the National Assembly that Nigeria has been categorized as the highest in Drug use prevalence rate in the world with 14.3%  as against 5.3% for the entire global community.

Available statistics showed that there are 14.4million drug users in Nigeria and 14 .3% prevalence rates, adding that this is higher than the global statistics of 5.3% drug use prevalence rate. Many of our youths indulge in drugs from the North to the South, East to West.
