YOUTH AGAINST DRUGS (JEUNESSE ANTI DROGUE)
In 1973, J.A.D “Jeunesse Anti drogue” (Youth Against Drugs) was established as a non-profit organization for social welfare, and it has received official recognition from the Lebanese ministry of the interior (number 164). J.A.D is a member of the National association for anti-drug. The administrative council consists of a president, and 13 members ranging from doctors, lawyers, engineers, professors and students, who believe in the duties and achievements of J.A.D.
J.A.D. is the sole organization working in Lebanon for the welfare of the society to create awareness among non-addicts, and provide prevention and healing means for the once addicted individuals.
To protect, support, guide and rehabilitate the drug-addicted. To cooperate with the public and private associations, committees, universities, institutions and schools in offering consultation services and expertise; and to conduct lectures and seminars to help and protect the Lebanese youth from drugs.To reduce criminal actions resulting from drugs.
To secure the reputation of Lebanon and change its war damaged image. When founded, J.A.D has vowed to protect the Lebanese society against the catastrophe of drug addiction. Drug destroys collective life, beginning with the destruction of the life, soul, and spirit of the addicted individual. As well as those who live with the addiction, or who are pushed by ignorance and aggression to fall into its hell; and those who commit crimes or even suicide as a result of intense shame associated with drug addiction. Throughout the long years of care and effort, J.A.D staff has discovered that the destructiveness of drug addiction affects every sector and level of contemporary Lebanese society.
