Running head: HEALTH CAMPAIGN

HEALTH CAMPAIGN
Health Campaign

Arizona State University
The use of alcohol increases the likelihood of using other
drugs. Using drugs with alcohol may lead to adverse health
conditions. It leads to physical ailments and increases the
chances of even abusing illicit drugs. This may cause severe
body injuries and brings about hazardous side effects. The use
of alcohol and other illegal drugs brings results also in the
people surrounding the victim. This is due to the side effects
brought about using drugs, and it puts the lives of many at risk,
(Gagnon, Jacob, & Holmes, 2010). The use of drugs should not
be taken lightly as it may even bring permanent damage to the
victim, making him or her life with the guilt. The combined use
of alcohol and drugs lead to a condition known as substance
abuse.
Substance abuse is a condition that involves the use of
alcohol and drugs. The use of alcohol and drug leads to
addiction; this is a situation where a victim cannot live or
survive without using drugs. This is a terrible condition as it
even interferes with the brain of the affected. Prolonged
consumption of alcohol and drugs increases the risk of tolerance
and dependence on them, (Gagnon, Jacob, & Holmes, 2010).
This use begins slowly, but later it becomes a craving for the
victim, and he or she feels incomplete if he or she has not
consumed both alcohol and the illicit drug. Once a body has
become addicted, it cannot function normally if the medicines
have not been wasted. This is an awful condition as one tends to
be slow when the body is reasonable, and the victim's mind
tends not to be sober or tends not to think.
The use of alcohol and drugs, which is commonly referred to as
substance abuse, is a condition that is common among the
youths. Young people have engaged so much in activities that,
according to them, bring pleasure to them. The abuse of drugs is
common among them. Some may abuse these drugs due to peer
pressure, and according to others, the use of drugs makes them
forget all their troubles and leave them feeling "high," a
common term they use. These young people tend to be ignorant
about the effects this abuse of drugs brings to them,(Gagnon,
Jacob, & Holmes, 2010).Young people have engaged themselves
in hazardous activities; some of them are even involved in
crimes as they do this under the influence of drugs.
The youths ought to be taken care of; many parents seem
not to care so much about the child because, according to them,
they are grownups. This is very wrong because, due to this
mentality, the strict measure is not put across to control young
people increase their chances of abusing drugs. Young people,
especially those in schools, take advantage of the fact that they
are away from their parents, and they have been given a lot of
freedom, (Falk, O’Donnell,Tompson, Gonzalez, Dal Cin,
Streche&An, 2016). To curb the problem of drug abuse, we
ought to talk to the young people and explain to them the
adverse negative effects of those drugs on their health, physical,
and mental conditions. The youth ought to know that substance
abuse does more harm to their body and that they do not only
give the “high’ feeling they experience.
Youth should know that drugs may lead to infections, this
may happen because under the influence of drugs and alcohol,
the victims may forget to use safe sex, and this may lead them
to contract diseases commonly known as STDs. As said earlier,
substance abuse leads to health effects, and the victim may
suffer from liver cirrhosis. Heavy consumption of alcohol and
drugs may also lead to kidney damage and other illnesses,
(Falk, O’Donnell, Tompson, Gonzalez, Dal Cin, Streche& An,
2016). Drug consumption may also lead to legal problems. This
may occur because it comes to a point in life when we all want
to stand for ourselves and pay for our bills, and this can only be
made possible by securing a job. In most cases, employers
always request for a drug test before employing anyone, once
you test positive, you cannot be employed, and this may make
you suffer for the rest of your life.
Substance abuse may even lead to financial constraints;
this is because most of the youths are students, and the drugs
are costly. To get these drugs, the students are forced to use the
money they must buy the pills, some even use school fees, and
this brings trouble even in their education life. The student
tends to use most of his or her time looking for these drugs
instead of focusing on books, and this lowers the performance
in school. Buying these drugs and alcohol makes it hard for one
to cater for the bills needed because the money to pay the bills
becomes limited. (Falk, O’Donnell, Tompson, Gonzalez, Dal
Cin, Streche& An, 2016). Drugs may also cause injuries; this
may occur when a victim is under the influence of alcohol and
may get involved even in road accidents causing injuries. Some
of these injuries may be so severe and lead to death.
The best conceptual framework that can be used in dealing
with drugs should be based on the youth because, as identified
earlier, the child is the target audience. In this framework, it
should define what substance abuse is. It should also state and
explain the adverse effects of alcohol and drug abuse, as
described earlier, (Falk, O’Donnell, Tompson, Gonzalez, Dal
Cin, Streche& An, 2016).The framework should also show the
various ways through which this drug abuse can be stopped. In
this, drug abuse should be prevented through health campaigns
like this and talking to students in high schools, universities,
and colleges.it should also explain the ways through which
addicts can be helped out of the addiction, and this is through
guidance and counseling and in cases where the situation is
worse, a rehabilitation center may be the best option.

Health Campaign Targets Youth Substance Abuse

  • 4. adverse negative effects of those drugs on their health, physical, and mental conditions. The youth ought to know that substance abuse does more harm to their body and that they do not only give the “high’ feeling they experience. Youth should know that drugs may lead to infections, this may happen because under the influence of drugs and alcohol, the victims may forget to use safe sex, and this may lead them to contract diseases commonly known as STDs. As said earlier, substance abuse leads to health effects, and the victim may suffer from liver cirrhosis. Heavy consumption of alcohol and drugs may also lead to kidney damage and other illnesses, (Falk, O’Donnell, Tompson, Gonzalez, Dal Cin, Streche& An, 2016). Drug consumption may also lead to legal problems. This may occur because it comes to a point in life when we all want to stand for ourselves and pay for our bills, and this can only be made possible by securing a job. In most cases, employers always request for a drug test before employing anyone, once you test positive, you cannot be employed, and this may make you suffer for the rest of your life. Substance abuse may even lead to financial constraints; this is because most of the youths are students, and the drugs are costly. To get these drugs, the students are forced to use the money they must buy the pills, some even use school fees, and this brings trouble even in their education life. The student tends to use most of his or her time looking for these drugs instead of focusing on books, and this lowers the performance in school. Buying these drugs and alcohol makes it hard for one to cater for the bills needed because the money to pay the bills becomes limited. (Falk, O’Donnell, Tompson, Gonzalez, Dal Cin, Streche& An, 2016). Drugs may also cause injuries; this may occur when a victim is under the influence of alcohol and may get involved even in road accidents causing injuries. Some of these injuries may be so severe and lead to death. The best conceptual framework that can be used in dealing with drugs should be based on the youth because, as identified earlier, the child is the target audience. In this framework, it
  • 5. should define what substance abuse is. It should also state and explain the adverse effects of alcohol and drug abuse, as described earlier, (Falk, O’Donnell, Tompson, Gonzalez, Dal Cin, Streche& An, 2016).The framework should also show the various ways through which this drug abuse can be stopped. In this, drug abuse should be prevented through health campaigns like this and talking to students in high schools, universities, and colleges.it should also explain the ways through which addicts can be helped out of the addiction, and this is through guidance and counseling and in cases where the situation is worse, a rehabilitation center may be the best option.
