Prevention and reduction of the negative health and social consequences of psychoactive substance use is important given the public health significance of psychoactive substance use in Goa.

Prevention activities have the potential to tackle risk factors of substance use as well as preventing onset, halting progression or reducing further health and social harm of substance use disorders.

Primary prevention measures can be directed towards health promotion activities involving educational and psychosocial interventions in different settings.It will help in preventing the initiation of substance abuse or delaying the age of initiation.

Primary prevention, by far, has been known to be the best strategy to control substance abuse and a number of countries across the globe have adopted different types of strategies for preventing drug use at the primary level.

Human Touch Foundation has been engaged in primary prevention activities in educational setting since 2016. We are targeting young people before they start using or experimenting with substances and discouraging or terminating drug use among those who have already experimented with or used substances.

Human Touch Foundation will roll out a module aimed at educating and prevention of initial substance use among the children.
