DRUG ADDICTION AND ITS ACADEMIC IMPLICATION AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENT

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Afolayan (2010) said that drug addiction is the continuous uncontrolled, compulsive use of a drug not only to include intoxication but also to avoid the tortures of withdrawal. While drug abuse is the taking of drugs or a deliberate use of drugs for purposes other than its intended purpose without the supervision of physician or a medical practitioner.

Despite the unrelenting efforts of individuals, agencies, mass media and the government at different levels against drug abuse, the prevalent practice among post-primary school students, teenagers and even adults in the community has not decreased but rather continued to increase. Drug abuse/addiction has gone a long way to create several health problems and dangers in our society. Such health problems include mental illness, cancer of the lungs, school drop-outs, juvenile delinquency, delirious behaviour, etc. The alarming rate of mental illness in our society/streets today whereby drug addiction is a major predisposing factor becomes a concern.

No wonder, conclusion has been drawn to the fact that the factors leading to the victims’ exposure are quite common, thus including the consumption of dangerous drugs during cultural and other festivities either at schools or homes during sports or athletic competitions among students, as these students exposed themselves to practicing drug abuse students involvement in cultism cannot be undermined as some put up some irrational acts.

Afolayan (2010) also said that students consumption of drugs during examination for the purpose of alertness is also very common. Also the adolescent periods are the period of chasing the opposite sex which most of them cannot ordinarily do without the use of some drugs to enable them become bold. The abuse of drugs which leads to addiction among the post-primary school students. Gradually progresses to cause a host of evil happenings in our society such as incessant occurrence of road traffic accident as a result of effects of these substances. In fact some students breakdown during examinations leading to failure and eventual drop-outs, some become rude and arrogant to teachers and parents and occasionally causing riots and chaos in their schools while some grow up to become criminal in the society landing them in prison-yards.

According to Kobiowu (2006), drug addiction is the inability of person to control his use of a drug/substance. He said further that for an addict, drug use is more than a habit, his desire for the drug also involves physical dependence i.e. an addict suffers a painful withdrawal illness if he stops the use of drug. According to Mickey (1994), evidence from literature established that the majority of people with addictive problems are dependent on alcohol or narcotic drugs. While David (1989) asserted that when addicts are deprived of their drugs, they experience an abstinence syndrome typified by objective signs of distress including loss of weight, cardiovascular changes, and gastrointestinal distress and in some cases of alcohol dependence, psychoses and seizures.

I actually googled and saw about iproject master, copied the number and contacted them through WhatsApp to ask for the availability of the material and to my luck they have it. So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic. I was really scared before making the payment cause I’ve been scammed twice, they attended so well to me and that made me trust the process and made the payment and provided them with proof, I got my material in less than 10minutes
