Short description:
THE MADA conception
This is in response to the increasing cry against the drug abuse and HIV/AIDS menace which is threatening our society. MADA hopes to identify the menace of the production, sale, and the use of narcotic and psychoactive drugs and the effects it has on the spread of the HIV/AIDS epidemic by creating awareness in the public to the hazards and consequences in the abuse of illicit drugs in our society. That is the financial, socio-economical, physical and mental aspects of this practice by providing advice in the control and finding eventual solutions to the problem. MADA is also mandated to establish a REHABILITATION CONSULTANCY SERVICES CENTER (R.C.S.C) WHOSE MANDATE WILL BE TO OFFER CONSULTANCY SERVICES to drug addicts, psychiatric patients and HIV/AIDS victims and help them to be reabsorbed into our productive society. MADA is therefore involved in coordinating an intensive nationwide campaign against drug abuse in Ghana.
