An online certificate course on drug abuse prevention was started today by the chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Pema Khandu. The course is for all state government employees.
The step is one of the ways that the state is trying to stop people from taking drugs.
During the first phase, state government employees in groups A and B will have to take the four-month course.
Chief Minister: These employees, who know how to stop drug abuse and manage it, will be good role models.
A certificate will be given to those who pass the course.
This new project is giving a significant boost to government efforts against drug abuse. Alcoholism and substance abuse are significant problems in the state, with young people often getting caught up in both.
“Most of us only hear about drug abuse and how it affects the lives of people who use it. Families who are harmed by this don’t interact with each other, so we haven’t seen much of the damage, “He said.
He also said that he was moved by the Arunachalee movie “I killed my son,” which came out recently. This is what he said: He said the film made him think about how drug abuse hurts families.
He asked all of the employees to do the online course independently. The chief minister also said that his government had given money to build six rehabilitation centers across the state.
The 4-month course will teach you about substance abuse, types of drugs, their harmful effects, signs and symptoms, myths and facts, and how to help someone who is having problems with drugs.
