One reason why drug addiction problem still exists is that of the fact that many people use drugs because they are not fully aware of how much damage can do to their body. Although it is a known fact that drugs are dangerous, they do not really realize these dangers until the time they experience it on their own. Therefore, in order to end this problem, raising awareness is a must.
Just like Stewkelley Memorial Walk, it has the aim of raising awareness about drug addiction. Events like this, along with the help of addiction treatment centers will be very helpful in reducing the number of drug addicts. This will also encourage drug users that help is available and they don’t have to face this dilemma alone. They need to know that there are institutions, agencies, and people who are always willing to lend a helping hand.
