The society is facing more and more drug addiction in the youth. The issue is more aggravated because the majority of these users are school and college students who are supposed to represent the future of our community. I have also examined that the number of girls is affected by this issue than the boys. This is also alarming as these girls have more important roles to play in the community. The aim of this analysis is to identify the people involved in the supply of drugs to educational institutions. The other objective of this analysis is to help the youth to indulge in some positive activities after quitting this life-threatening habit. The same problem has also been identified by some other social organizations and there are some hoardings outside institutions showing the slogan ‘say no to drugs’ (Gandhi, Murphy-Graham and Petrosino).
A committee will be formed to investigate the major reasons for the increase in drug abuse, especially in educational institutions. For this purpose, a survey will be conducted to see the institutions which are affected the most by drugs and these institutions will be the primary focus of this study.
The use of technology will also help in studying the whole issue in detail. Online historical data will be gathered to assess if there have been any changes in the pattern of drug abuse. As per my understanding, this abuse has certainly increased in educational institutions. Placement of hidden cameras around these institutions will also help in tracing the main culprits who are involved in the provision of the drugs to students (Kandel).
One more issue related to this problem is the ease with which these students have been able to access the drugs. The data will be collected about the meetups of these students and especially those gatherings where drugs are used. In the next step, some common aspects of these gatherings are noted to reach some conclusions.
In the past, police officers have kept an eye on the people who provided drugs in the schools. However, no solid steps have been taken to demolish their major bases from where they operate. The sources from where they get the drugs have also remained unidentified.
There are no current responses to the problem other than the parents being forced to change the institutions of children over and over again. This analysis has conducted several interviews with the drug users and the major reply was that they started to take on the drugs out of the inspiration of friends.
The major reason for this rise in drug abuse is that the parents are not fully aware of activities undertaken by their children. Another aspect is the lack of physical activities available to these students which also compels them towards drugs (Ettore, Chiabrando, and Castiglioni).
The first response from my department will be the deployment of a large number of street officers who will try and take a better knowledge of the community. Along with this strategy, I will contact some other departments to know the way they have approached the same problem in the past.
The best intervention method will be to identify the providers of drugs and finish them along with their whole rackets. The addicts will then join the rehabilitation centers. On the community level, there is a need to increase the involvement of students in sports and other physical activities.
I have already deployed many officers in the field to analyze the community and educational institutions in particular. These officers have traced many people who have been involved in providing drugs to the students.
Some rehabilitation centers have also joined the campaign to resolve the drug’s issue and bringing the addicts back to healthier life. Conducting sports festivals on a biannual basis is also under consideration.
As per my reports, there have been more than ten people arrested while trying to approach the students. Drugs have been retrieved from all these people. A small number of students has been shifted to the rehabilitation centers but these were just beginners in the drug abuse. It will take time for the regular addicts to come back to life.
