The extensive use of narcotics
within and outside educational institutions has become a serious concern
nowadays. Drug dealers target students both as carriers as well as clients.
It’s high time for teachers and parents to work against and eradicate this evil
force. The highly energetic youth can be guided by educating and at the same
time by warning against the adverse effect of narcotics.
The anti-drugs cell of the Mother
Arts and Science College, Peruvallur has been constituted to ensure a drug-
free society by imposing a total ban on the possession or consumption or use of
drugs and alcohol by students of the college, within or outside the campus. The
main goal of antinarcotics cell is to enhance the students’ awareness and
understanding of the harmful social and health effects of illicit drug use. The
duties of the anti-drugs cell include organizing awareness programmes in the
college with the help of government authorized agencies/ organizations.
Educating the students about the ill-effects of drugs and alcohol, encouraging
peer policing among students against the use of drugs and reporting of any
noticed use of drugs by the students to the student’s affairs committee are
also the duties of the anti-drugs cell. The Anti Narcotic Cell organizes
seminars, poster, campaigns and rallies in order to spread awareness against
the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs. We keep close contact with the excise
and police departments and arrange programs to make the students aware of the
strong legal force working against narcotics and inculcate respect towards
parents, teachers and the Indian judiciary.
