Drug use remains a youth threatening problem. Despite the fact that drug usage is prohibited and restricted in many countries, it has not been feasible to preclude it the provide illegal in some ways. This problem is increasing in Spain as well as in almost all European countries. Drug use is increasing rapidly among young people and school-age children. Curiosity, friend’s environment, lack of education, false beliefs, familial and socioeconomic difficulties, easy access to drugs draws our young people into this trap. Furthermore, according to recent research, young people are more likely to meet drugs due to the lack of adequate and appropriate opportunities to direct young people to social, sports and cultural activities. The aim of the project is to analyze in-depth the factors causing drug use and find solutions to prevent, to increase the knowledge, skills, and quality of the young people participating in the project, to make them a part of the solution; to increase their awareness of decision making in local, regional, national, European and international areas. The project will address the underlying factors and causes of drug use.
