Challenge

We live in the country in transition where family is confronted with big challenges: family breakdown, too much time spent on jobs for little salary, little available time spent with kids, collapse of values. This affects everybody but teenagers are mostly affected because their teenage culture is challenging so they need secure support system which primary family/school often can't provide. Alcohol and drug abuse is common among youth in Subotica and Serbia.

Solution

In last 10 years, we educated through our preventive interactive exhibition "Metamorphozis-drugs" over 25000 teenagers from primary and secondary schools about risks of psychoactive substance use/abuse and our research which we repeat every 4 years is showing change in values, attitudes and greater knowledge among teenagers from Subotica. Also, they are reporting about change in attitudes towards psychoactive substances.

Long-Term Impact

We will educate 5000 teenagers and help them change their attitudes toward healthy life, allowing them to gain consciousness and knowledge about psychoactive substances, to develop safety plan for their problems - so they can recognize their need for help and they will know how and where they can seek help.
