Ahmad Dahlan Center for Dug Information and Testing


Drug abuse prevalence in Indonesia is increasing every year with most of the victims being school and university students. Based on the data, drug users in Indonesia reached 4 million in 2011, about one third of the users were introduced to drugs through smoking. To our alarm, a high number of students in Indonesia, including Yogya,  are active smokers. Drugs abuse may lead to the spread of HIV-AIDS through free sex behaviour. The National Drug Beureu had rehabiltated as many as 34.467 drug users through medical and social rehabilitation at both government and non government-run rehabilitation centers. Therefore, through PIKO, UAD takes an active part in the campaign against drug abuse by socializing harmful effect of drug consumption.
