During the lecture, villagers and students were sensitised about various aspects of drug abuse which included type of drugs and their adverse effects on the health, family and society. The symptoms, treatment and rehabilitation was given due emphasis during the discussion.

On being asked about the cure the medical officer explained that for drugs “prevention is better than cure” however, there are various rehabilitation centers being run by the State government and NGOs that not only treat the drug addicts but also helps them in leading a normal life.
He also emphasised that an affected person must be taken for rehabilitation at the earliest to overcome the menace.
The event concluded with a question and answer session in which the involvement of students was forthcoming. The locals appreciated the efforts of the army in organising such activities which generates awareness and a feeling of goodwill amongst the locals, especially the youth.
