More About The Service

The ‘health-centred’ anti-drug education approach, advocated by United Nations, suggests such education should start during childhood and take care of the physical and mental growth needs of children. In the aspect of knowledge, children should correctly understand the scourges of drug abuse and taking narcotics. Regarding skills and attitudes, they should be able to build up personal images with self- confidence and self-acceptance. Moreover, they should have the ability to handle interpersonal relationship in an appropriate way and with mutual respect. They also should understand the influences of peer groups, media and internet, as well as to seek help from trustworthy people when in need. In this way, they can overcome the challenges and stress in study, social life, family and during the development stage. The risks of drug taking and drug trafficking can also be minimised. We also believe that family is the cornerstone of children’s healthy development, while good parent-child relationship is a strong safety net to keep children away from drugs. Therefore, CDAC is committed to provide diversified health education programmes for primary school students and their parents.
