Substance Abuse and addiction of illicit drugs is a global problem and can only be stopped by joined efforts of all society layers and organizations in a joined, structural and continued action. It is not only the responsibility of governments. All civil society organizations should get involved in their specific field of activity. Rotarians will strengthen this common effort through the work of clubs and districts with the support of the Rotarian Action Group Addiction Prevention.
