Addiction is a very complex problem involving and influencing many families. In every Rotary club we will find one of our friends with an addiction problem or at least addiction problems in his/her family or amongst the friends. We are all in touch with the problem as well in the North and the West, the opiate problem is  an example, as well in East and South.

What will you do about it, what can your club do, how can your district support and stimulate clubs to take action  to implement prevention programs in your local region. RAG AP will help you and will provide you with all information and materials you need to make a well considered step to involve your clubs and districts in the struggle to protect children as early as possible from getting addicted.
