In commemoration of this year’s World Drug Day, some schools in the Upper East Region hosted drug sensitization programs aimed at educating students about the dangers of substance abuse.

The initiative sought to empower youth with knowledge to make informed decisions regarding their health and well-being.

Officials from LOAD Ghana visited five schools, including Bolgatanga Girls’ Senior High School and Bongo Senior High School, to engage students in interactive sessions.

In an interview on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper East show, Dr. Aaron Atogembisia and Dr. Abanga Moses Nyaaba emphasized key points such as the risks associated with misusing prescription drugs, highlighting that taking medications differently from prescribed instructions constitutes drug abuse.

The Founder and Executive Director of LOAD Ghana, Abaa Roger Atambire, also advised parents to maintain vigilant supervision over their children to mitigate potential risks associated with substance abuse.

The programs concluded with a call to action for continued community support in promoting drug-free environments within schools and neighborhoods. Students expressed gratitude for the opportunity to learn about the realities of substance abuse and pledged to share their newfound knowledge with peers.

Such initiatives underscore the collective effort to safeguard youth against the detrimental effects of substance abuse, fostering healthier communities across the region.
