During the lecture, 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 were given due emphasis during the discussion. The speaker explained to the audience how the drug traffickers are playing with the lives of youth by pushing them into the vicious cycle of drugs by initially supplying the contraband at a low cost and once the person gets addicted to it, then exploiting to their benefit. The students were explained about various types of drugs and how it affects the body system like neuro, respiratory and blood. On being asked about the cure, speaker explained that for drugs, prevention is better than cure. However, there are various rehabilitation centres being run by the state government and NGOs that not only treat the drug addicts but also helps them in living a normal life.

The event concluded with a question and answer session in which the involvement of students was forthcoming.
