The world is grappling with drug crisis since times immemorial. Hundreds of people die every day from drug related overdoses while millions suffer from drug addiction. The drug crisis has reached such proportions where it does not only pose a danger for public health but is fast becoming tedious for the economy and a threat to the national security. The problem always begins with over prescription of legally approved medicines.
But the influx of cheap drugs like heroin and other synthetic opioids supplied by drug peddlers both nationally and internationally has resulted in creating destruction.
In recent years we want to not only cut down on both domestic and foreign supply of drugs and also limit the number of prescriptions in the country. Moreover, Federal and State officials are trying to reduce the demand by focusing on the treatment of drug addicts rather than just punishing them.
Opium or opioids have been commonly used to treat pain while methadone is used for the treatment of addicts in addiction centers. In 1990s opioids became popular as doctors prescribed them for cancer patients or for persons who had undergone surgery. But recently these drugs are given to patients with back, knee or joint pains although their safety and effectiveness have always been questioned.
Our mission is to educate the masses about the causes and consequences of opium usage and addiction. We want to go further applying this knowledge to help people to improve individual as well as public health.
This will involve:
- Purposefully supporting and supervising fundamental and clinical research on opium and drug use that includes nicotine too. Our research involves the consequences of drugs and undisclosed behavioral, neurobiological and social structure involved.
- We ensure that there is effective understanding, implementation and circulation of the findings of scientific research so that we can help in its prevention and treatment. We would like to make the public aware of drug addiction and let them see it as nothing but a brain disorder.
- We make opium use safer despite the legal status of the drug. We share information with communities and health and policy companies by sharing our research through our media partners, media channels, academic papers and data-based reports and expert opinions.
