  • In you opinion how important is parental education and relationships within the family in preventing drug addiction?

    I think this is the most crucial thing. Parents have to be very open about it to discuss, explain how scary consequences there would be, and how everyone can be happy without any of them. It shouldn't be just a refusal of delinquency, or something related to discrimination. But something rather giving children wider perspective and knowledge. Such children never choose the way to put them into unappreciative situation by themselves I think.

  • Doctors tend not to talk about "recovered drug addicts," and prefer the term "inactive addicts" those who dont use drugs right at given moment. In your opinion, is it not possible to get rid of this label? Even in the opinion of drug treatment experts, patients remain forever addicted. How can the modern society be taught to have an adequate attitude toward former drug addicts and consider them as a part of the society?

    Cancers can be cured, injuries can be cured, grief from downfall in your life can be cured. Then why not drug addiction? I don't think this is related to "drug" specifically. When someone has real intention to change something, they absolutely can. For any kind of things. Even not only for drug addiction, but for any kind of struggle there must be always the space for them in society. And that probably means not to prepare something special but not to "differentiate" anything about them. However, that doesn't mean we can overlook about drug usage of course. It has to be strict, but there must not be any discrimination, especially when they have the intention to change themselves for better.

  • What should be in the Internet age and growth of online communities informational methods to combat drug addiction? What do you think, what means will be most effective today, and how the state should behave in order to successfully affect the suffering of drug addiction and to conduct prevention among healthy population?

    There has to be legitimate website which explains clearly, accurately, yet not in extreme way about the reality. Information mustn't be hidden or covered. Meanwhile, it must not be something to defame or criticize someone/group/society in unprofessional way. Also communication, serious debates among all kind of people could be very valuable. Government should clarify in public about the consequences of usage of drugs either physically and legally. Campaigns, events, strict but very supportive management and cooperation by many sections would be appreciative.
