cluster of physiological, behavioural, and cognitive phenomena in which
the use of substances takes on a much higher priority for a given

It usually includes a strong desire or sense of compulsion to take the

substance despite its harmful consequences, as well as a physiological
withdrawal state.

 In 1987 the General Assembly decided to observe 26 June as the

International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
"Unless we reduce demand for illicit
drugs, we can never fully tackle
cultivation, production or trafficking.
Governments have a responsibility to
counteract both drug trafficking and
drug abuse, but communities can also
make a major contribution.

Families, schools and civil society can

do their part to rid their communities of
drugs. Businesses can help provide
legitimate livelihoods. The media can
raise awareness about the dangers of

Quit Drug Abuse With Meditation &
Selfless Service

Drug abuse is a bad thing. Quit it. And those who

want to give it up, come to the Ashram. Any kind
of drug addiction you have, however dangerous,
however old it may be, come and serve here in the
ashram for 8 to 10 days and you will be able to
give up your addiction without any discomfort.
You will be provided residence and diet facilities
free of cost. Medicines will also be provided free of
cost if any need arises.
Quitting Drugs to save the country

Drugs are an unholy weapon in the proxy war

waged by terror outfits against the country. The
youth are becoming physically unfit and
unproductive because of drugs. When the children
and youth are entrapped in intoxicants, the
country will clearly spiral downwards. Also, it is
well known that the trade in drugs is fuelling
narco-terrorism. This is clearly a war that the
whole world needs to win in order to defeat
terrorism as well.
Rallies Against Social Evils

Dera Sacha Sauda conduct rallies against social

evils for public awareness. Save the girl child.
Female feticide is a sin. Every girl child’s murder is
a serious blunder. Drug abuse is life abuse. Dowry
system is a nuisance, save woman from its
appearance. Don’t cut the trees, save the earth,
agreed! Save water and nature, secure well being
in future. Prostitution and homosexuality are
pollutant, stop these this very instant. Stop spread
of evil storm, go for social reform. Use of such
slogans across the country during rallies
highlights the social reform program of Dera
Sacha Sauda.
