The Hidden Face of Drug Addiction

A recent report by The Action Committee Against Narcotics (ACAN) highlighted the increasing number of drug abusers among working youth*. Maintaining a professional veneer, they are not always easy to identify or locate.

However, once located, the HKFYG Youth Crime Prevention Centre (YCPC) has been assisting drug abusing working youth to break their habits, manage their abstinence, rebuild their lives and reintegrate more fully into society.  With support from the Beat Drugs Fund, the YCPC will initiate the three year Project SEToff II from December 2019, a sequel to a similarly titled programme from two years ago.  This version will target young people aged from 16 to 35 at their places of work or online and provide them with health assessments, positive life development goals, career counselling and family support networks. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-based relapse prevention treatments and referrals to partnering clinical psychologists and medical officers will also be available. 

Project SEToff II is one of three anti-drug programmes launched this year. Project CHOICE, a community-based educational campaign tackles cannabis use and Healthy Transition is a programme for substance abusers with mental health issues. 

All these different approaches share a common goal: a healthy drug-free life for young people in Hong Kong.
