Himanshu sinha, aged 38, a resident of Vishnu Garden, begged for the way, to come out of, his addiction of alcohol, which he has been consuming from more than 25 years without an alteration of even a single day.
This is not the only case found, out of more than 1000 households surveyed, by the volunteers of #Bodh- the Drug Abuse Eradication Program of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan(#DJJS). Under the ongoing ‘बोध कैम्पेन’ – नशे के विरुद्ध एक आदोलनकारी मुहीम, running in Vishnu garden, 45 volunteers, holding the responsibility and zeal to change the society, went for the survey of the area viz.a.viz. Vishnu garden, Rajouri garden, Tagore Garden, Raghuveer Nagar and Tilak Nagar in New Delhi.
Those volunteers witnessed the falsification of the myth, ‘drug abuse is a victimless crime‘, when they saw, how substance (drug) abuse not only leads to immense human distress ,but also, is a significant cause of crimes and violence in the society. Here, people are living their lives miserably, including not only users but women, children and elders as victims.
But, this is just a small picture; the scenario of this entire world is more horrifying. With a huge turnover of more than $500 billion, it has become a fastest growing business. It has been estimated that about 230 million people throughout the world are involved in the abuse of one or the other substance.
Therefore, due to such steep rise in consumption, availability of such products is readily accessible. In addition, the volunteers also shared during the feedback meeting, held after survey that, after every 10-20 steps, there is a shop available selling various brands of cigarettes, gutkas, bidis, paan or supari, which makes the younger population of the society, its target.
In light of such an observation, we have included both the strategies such as- the dissemination of prevention education and treatment of the addicts, based on organization’s uniquely developed psycho-analytical module, founded on ‘Dhyan Therapy’ as the core of #BODH CAMPAIGN’s modus operandi.
In order to serve and sensitize people, with regards to awareness generation activities on drug abuse, enlightening street plays, [nukkad nataks], along with informative power point presentations, testimonies of the transformed awakened citizens, who were otherwise confirmed addicts previously, lectures, drugs based quizs, pledges, etc, shall be organized at heavy footfall areas and the names of those, requiring treatment, will be registered. Similarly, the registered victims will be treated as per the organization’s Psychoanalytical Module, based on ‘Dhyan Therapy’, including detoxification, counseling (individual and family), meditation session, positive engagement activities and after care.
