Zurich, in the frame of the WDD 2023


In full alignment with the 2023 World Drug Day theme:                                                        Focus on people: End stigma and discrimination, strengthen prevention,            the Say No To Drug association of Zurich ( Sag NEIN zu Drogen) has taken this attitude and especially the importance of prevention to heart for over 30 years and has taken this special day as an opportunity to publicize the idea of prevention by means of easy-to-read information brochures The Truth About Drugs at an information stand in the city of Zurich.

Zurich is not only famous in Switzerland for being a world bank and financial center but also because of the beauty of its view , its lake and historic center, including the old town and the huge Grossmünster church, and more…

The importance of drug prevention is confirmed by the statement of a psychiatrist: she regularly has cases of psychosis triggered by cannabis in her practice. She said it was bad how cannabis use was “normalized” and not made aware of the dangers associated with its use. She greatly appreciated the association’s prevention brochure on cannabis.

A 35-year-old cocaine user confirmed how bad cocaine was and how he had been trying to get off it for several years. Having drug dispensaries does not make it easier to get away from drugs, as previous booth visitors repeatedly confirmed.

One man talked about how his life was bad when he was using drugs and how he was in a hole. He was proud to say that he has been drug-free for seven months!            So abstinence-based drug treatment makes a lot of sense and can give people new courage to face life.

Foundation for a Drug-Free Europe was formed in March 2004 with the firm purpose of preventing and stopping debilitating drug use through educating non-users concerning the harmful effects that drugs can inflict upon the body, mind and personality, and by finding and directing existing users to programmes that can help them achieve comfortable abstinence for life.
