The Addiction and Youth Services
Nowadays, the topic of addiction has been forgotten by many people. Yet “addiction” is a very relevant topic for many – especially young people.
An addict doesn’t always have to be the heroin junkie with the syringe, it can also be the gambling addict, the competitive athlete who gets high or a non-substance-related addiction. And as long as you’re not sitting under the bridge with the junkie, it’s hard for you to admit your own addictions. You can’t identify with the classic image of an addict, so the logical conclusion would be that you yourself don’t have a problem with it.
The Sucht- und Jugendhilfe e.V. has made it its business to pay more attention to the topic of addiction again and also to educate people about the rather unknown addictions. Therefore, Sucht- und Jugendhilfe e.V. visits schools in particular, gives lectures and educates future adults about the insidious dangers of addictions/addictions.
For this reason, BEX has been supporting the prevention program since 2019 to educate and protect more young people from the dangers.
