Today's youth face many risks, including drug abuse, violence, and HIV/AIDS. Responding to these risks before they become problems can be difficult. One of the goals of writing this book is to help the public understand the causes of drug abuse and to prevent its onset. Drug abuse has serious consequences in our homes, schools, and communities. From this book’s perspective, the use of all illicit drugs and the inappropriate use of illicit drugs are considered drug abuse. Prevention science has made great progress in recent years. Many interventions are being tested in "real-world" settings, so they can be more easily adapted for community use. Scientists are studying a broader range of populations and topics. They have identified, for example, effective interventions with younger populations to help prevent risk behaviors before drug abuse occurs. Researchers are also studying older teens, which are already using drugs to find ways to prevent further abuse or addiction. Practical issues, such as cost-benefitanalyses, are being studied. Presenting these findings to the public through this book is the most important responsibilities. I am pleased to offer this First edition of the publication, DRUG ABUSE - PROBLEM MANAGEMENT AND PREVENTION First Edition. The first edition offers updated principles, new questions and answers, new program information, and expanded references. This edition summarizes sections of the guide for community use. This book is designed as per the latest syllabus of Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar. I hope you will find this First edition useful and helpful. Prof. Punit [email protected]

The Punjab Borderland offers a fascinating insight into how the new international boundary between India and Pakistan was made, subverted, and transformed. Dispelling the established historiographical narratives of an increasingly militarised border that presents as the epitome of animosity and a classic example of inter-state tension, this book offers a corrective to these accounts by bringing out narratives of border crossings and social relations built on mutual benefit and trust. It conceptualises the making of the vast contraband as an analytical tool, not merely as borderland societies' modes for evading the state imposition of a partitioned geography on their local lifeworld, but as a catalyst for enabling social mobility and political empowerment for the population involved and a thriving market for consumption in the urban centres. It reveals a 'bottom-up' history of the Punjab border and the invention of the borderland society, narrating a story with local meanings and transnational dimensions.

Drug addiction is a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2014). Substance abuse had spread epidemically in the beginning of the 21st century (MacNeil, Stewart, & Kaufman, 2000). As per World Drug Report 2017 globally, premature deaths due to drugs are estimated to be 1,90,000 out of which the majority is attributable to the opioids use. An estimated quarter of a billion people of the world adult population, used drug a minimum of one time in 2015. Even more worrisome statistics is that, about 29.5 million of drug users suffer from drug use disorders and out of this, 70 percent of the diseases were attributable to opioids, thus causing the highest negative impact on health (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime [UNODC], 2017). India ranks third largest producer of synthetic opium after Pakistan and Burma (Paoli, Greenfield, Charles, & Reuter, 2009). The menace of drug abuse in Punjab is worse than the rest of the country. The total number of drug users in Punjab is 2,32,856 out of which, 99% are male (Phukan, 2017). In this regard, Singh (2010) reported that the opiates consumption in the state of Punjab is thrice as per national average report. In India there are about two lakh intravenous drug users (IDUS) out of which Punjab counts 26.1% (National AIDS Control Organisation [NACO], 2012). Furthermore, there is 200 to 250 billion dollar expenditure in treating drug abuse (UNODC, 2010). The review of existing literature shows that in India and specifically the state of Punjab has witnessed a gigantic use of drugs in the recent past years (Kalva and Bansal, 2012). Drugs are related to crime in many ways. To use, purchase, sold, manufacture or distribute illicit drug is considered as a crime. Propocyphene, methadone, opiates, heroin, cocaine, cannabis, amphetamine are a few examples of these illicit drugs. Their intake changes the behaviour of an individual thus making them vulnerable to aggression, violence and mental illness. A high percentage of crime is being done under the influence of drugs or liquor. Literature shows the role of drugs and alcohols in proliferation of crime. The use of drugs, alcohol consumption and violent crime are closely linked with each other (Valdez, Kaplan, & Curtis, 2007). Regarding this, Mumola (1999) reported that 60% to 80% of crime is related to drug. Additionally, Singh and Singh (2011) observed that drug users are involved in crime and possess traits that predispose individuals to criminal behaviour such as antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Criminal propensity explains the various forms of antisocial behaviour. "Criminal propensity is genetic however these pathological traits interact and are often aggravated by environmental social conditions" (Delisi, 2005). In the similar vein, Singh and Sharma (2016) reviewed literature pertaining to crime, behaviour of criminals and drug addicts. They identified four dimensions viz., aggression, disobedience, anti social behaviour and drug abuse to measure criminal propensity among drug addicts. According to Nichols (1997) the effectiveness of sports and leisure activity in reducing crime has little evidence in the existing literature. In this regard, Smith and Waddington (2004) asserted that sporting schemes have shown little evidence of effectiveness in reducing the rate of crime and drug use. The existing literature examining the role of sports and recreational activity in the management of criminal propensity.
