Project: Heroin Addiction ….. Reaching Out!
My project is about Heroin…. a drug that has impacted our society in such a way that it has become a serious threat to our social and economic development and it is also now linked to a serious public health issue.
In Seychelles studies have been conducted yielding data evidence that heroin is being consumed by many people of which more of its users are young people. Over the past ten years it has become increasingly clear that its common consumption patterns have changed from smoking to injecting.
I believe firmly that each and everyone can make a difference and therefore the primary objective of my project is to reach out to Seychelles community through a comprehensive programme of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation targeting mainly young people, heroin dependants and their families.
