The findings of the World Drug Report 2013 deliver important lessons for the forthcoming high-level review of the commitments that countries reaffirmed on the measures for drug control. These measures are laid out in the Political Declaration and Plan of Action on International Cooperation towards an Integrated and Balanced Strategy to Counter the World Drug Problem. 

    We have to admit that, globally, the demand for drugs has not been substantially reduced and that some challenges exist in the implementation of the drug control system, in the violence generated by trafficking in illicit drugs, in the fast evolving nature of new psychoactive substances, and in those national legislative measures which may result in a violation of human rights. The real issue is not to amend the Conventions, but to implement them according to their underlying spirit. 

     While intensified competition in trafficking in cocaine has led to growing levels of violence in the world, the problem will not be resolved if drugs are legalized. Organized crime is highly adaptive. It will simply move to other businesses that are equally profitable and violent. 

    As experience has shown, neither supply reduction nor demand reduction on their own are able to solve the problem. For this reason, a more balanced approach in dealing with the drug problem is a necessity. This includes more serious efforts on prevention and treatment, not only in terms of political statements, but also in terms of funds dedicated for these purposes.
When people first experiment with drugs, the process is similar. Usually, the individual careful measures how much he takes to avoid an overdose, and expects a certain outcome from the substance.
But something is often overlooked. People tend to disregard, or at least underestimate the horrors of addiction. 

Like any idea or choice that we make, addiction starts in the mind. You’ll never start drinking or using drugs unless you think about it and then chose to try it.
Usually, someone begins taking drugs because of an emotional experience. Whether it’s losing a job, going through a divorce or trying to cope with the death of a loved one, people often take drugs to escape the reality of a difficult situation.
Other reasons for an experiment with drugs include: curiosity, influence from friends or simply out of interest or pleasure. Whatever the reason may be, during the experimental stage, drugs are usually taken short-term and randomly.


A good definition of the experimental stage would be “the voluntary use of drugs without experiencing any negative social or legal consequences.”  But even in using drugs or alcohol as a short-term source for enjoyment, you’re playing with fire.
The problem usually ensues once the fire is kindled. When the user discovers the temporary relief in their substance of choice, they begin to crave that feeling of relief again.
But our emotions will never be satisfied by using a substance. So I have to ask, why ? Why risk your life by experimenting with drugs or alcohol? It isn’t worth it. I promise.
But those who choose to take the risk take the plunge into the next stage of addition.
During the social stage the substance begins to change different facets of the user’s life. From the way the person feels, to how he thinks and communicates – the social stage is a game changer.



The dictionary defines insanity as "inability to manage one's own affairs and perform one's social duties" - "without precognition of one's own illness". Another aspect of our insanity is our distorted self-image. Somehow, each of th addicts come to think of their problem as being so unique that what will work for others will not work for them.

They have come to believe that a Power greater than themselves could restore them to sanity and so it has. What they have come to see the evidence that the programme works for those who believe in it.

    A study, conducted by doctors of the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), has shown that drug abuse has increased among youngsters in the 16-25 age group.
    The study shows that most of the patients in the de-addiction centre were dependent often on alcohol, opium, cannabis, heroine, brown sugar, cocaine, cough syrup and various types of pharmaceutical drugs.   Most of the patients at the centre belong to the urban area with few of the rest of the patients belonging to rural backgrounds.   Substance use patterns are notorious for their ability to change over time. Both licit and illicit substance use cause serious public health problems and evidence for the same is now available in our country.
     As per World Health Organization, 230 million people, or 1 in 20 adults, are estimated to have used an illicit drug. They need proper treatment of alcohol and drug use disorders.

    Depending on the actual compound, drug abuse including alcohol lead to health problems, social problems, morbidity, injuries, unprotected sex, violence, deaths, motor vehicle accidents, homicides, suicides, physical dependence or psychological addiction.
    Long-term abuse of alcohol and other drugs causing physiological distortion of brain chemistry as well as the social isolation.
    Alcohol or Drug abuse is also associated with increased risks of committing criminal offences including child abuse, domestic violence, rapes, burglaries and assaults.
    Drug abuse makes central nervous system (CNS) effects, which produce changes in mood, levels of awareness or perceptions and sensations.

Our Research in this field shows addictions, drug induced psychiatric & behavioral disorders would be fade away with PROPER TREATMENT and Prolonged Abstinence only.
