Different people use drugs for different reasons (escape, relax, curiosity, fit in, boredom, rebel, experiment, etc.) but all of them want to change something is their lives. They think drugs are a solution. But eventually, the drugs become the problem.

The main objective of our project was to protect the members of the society (in particular children and youth) from harmful environment, to help them eliminate/reduce the risk factors which determine the use of psychoactive substances and the development of various addictions.
