As part of this year’s International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, we would like to know from you what has been successful for combatting the problems related to drug abuse in your experience. Join the debate and share your insights!

The International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking serves as an expression of the United Nation’s determination to reinforce strong action and collaboration as the means to achieve a global society free from drug abuse.

What’s this year’s focus?

The theme for 2017 is: ‘Listen First – Listening to children and youth is the first step to help them grow healthy and safe’.

A key emphasis is on furthering the support for drug prevention initiatives grounded in evidence-based practice as the best way to achieve effective health outcomes for children, youth and those around them.

En mi experiencia creo que lo mas importante es el dialogo, entendido por este la capacidad de intercambiar informacion satisfaciendo la curiosodad y desconocimiento del individuo, asi como dejar abierto este canal de comunicación en donde el individuo se sienta en confianza de regresar para seguir satisfaciendo posteriores dudas. Cuando logramos esto aportamos seguridad en el individuo, lo ayudamos a adquirir un juicio critico y lo mas importante la seguridad que este necesita para enfrentarse a nuevas situaciones de su vida que esten relacionadas con factores de riesgo y que lo provean de la capacidad de análisis que este pueda necesitar para tomar las desiciones adecuadas.
