KAJANG, 2 August 2022 – The National Anti-Drugs Agency (NADA) is still actively battling drug and alcohol abusers in the neighbourhood, particularly among young people.
According to the Buku Maklumat Dadah Tahun 2021, youth between the ages of 19 and 39 make up 60% of the groups with drug problems.
Therefore, the NADA formed a strategic alliance with the Persekutuan Seni Silat Cekak Pusaka Ustaz Hanafi (Pusaka Hanafi) in order to address the growing issue of debt among the younger generation.
Various initiatives were recently discussed in accordance with the target group during Pusaka Hanafi’s work visit to the NADA Headquarters in Kajang, Selangor.
The delegation from Pusaka Hanafi, led by Vice President of Pusaka Hanafi Malaysia Aminuddin Dahlan, also discussed ways to work together on community prevention initiatives, such as the treatment and rehabilitation of NADA clients.
At the same time, expressed a desire to carry out activities under the Drug Jihad Program to raise community knowledge, awareness, and prevention skills by exposing people to the dangers of drugs.
The Deputy Director General (Operations) of NADA, Dato’ Dr. Muhamad Sade Mohamad Amin, and the Director of NADA’s Prevention Division, Zainudin Abdullah, participated in the courtesy visit session on behalf of NADA.
