This study will be undertaken within duration of three months across selected regions across the globe. It is a time-bound project and hence at the end of the three months the research team must accomplish their objectives and come up with a completely furnished report on the problem of drug abuse across different regions across the globe and the consequent impact of drug counseling programs across these regions.

This project will commence on the 12th September 2014 to be completed on the 12th December 2014. As indicated in the project outline the project process will be divided into four sections. The most important part of any project is the stage of data collection.
Data collection Methods.
This section covers the data collection procedures, data analysis techniques and ethical considerations for the study. An explanatory design will be used to establish the impact of drug and substance abuse in different areas across the globe. An explanatory design is quite effective since it explains the correlation between different factors affiliated with drug and substance such as emotional factors, intellectual development factors and personality factors in an individual. Since it is impossible to study everyone across the globe, this project will be developed from studying a target population drawn from different part of the globe. 200 people will be drawn from different regions of the globe.
Data Collection, Procedures and Instruments.
The main techniques of data collection that will be employed in this project will originate directly from the sources (target population). Questionnaires and interviews will hence be the main tools of research. A questionnaire and an interview schedule will be used as the main research tool for this study. The questionnaire has been chosen as it provides a more comprehensive view than any other research tool. Questionnaires will be used to obtain primary data from the sampled population. All the respondents will be asked the same questions in the same order. The questionnaire contained both open- and closed-ended items. Questionnaires produce both qualitative and quantitative data. The main advantage of a questionnaire is that it allows the researcher to control and focus responses to the research objectives. This enhances relevancy of data collected.
This project will focus on three basic pillars of human race. Drug and substance abuse affects the social, economic and moral aspects of human life. The relationship between the three pillars is quite intricate and important in determining the personality and mutual existence of the society. The greatest percentage of the modern society is comprised of the young and easily gullible. Drug and substance abuse is unfortunately affiliated with the posh life and celebrities of the new world order. Celebrities in the modern world are leading the so called “heaven on earth” out of the massive profits they make from their performances and products. They therefore have all funds at their disposal hence they can acquire any substance without any health complication. the most unfortunate part of this life is poverty, statistics indicate that 64% of families in the modern population cannot meet their daily expenditure of approximately five US dollars.
In fact 16% of the poor families live on average 3 US dollars a day. This is undoubtedly the poorest standards one can ever live in. the rift between the affluent and noble is immensely huge with hence forcing the poor to indulge in vices such as drug and substance abuse to drive away the depression they live in. the wave of modernization is another deliverable that has led to massive alienation of the morals upheld by different societies across the globe. Technology has had its influence felt across all fields in the modern world. The case is not in any way different. Technology has indeed amplified the cartel of drug and substance abuse via modernization of the acquisition techniques. Drugs can easily, cheaply and frequently be distributed to the addicts in the modern day world. The old folks on the other hand are highly handcuffed in the fight against drug and substance abuse since they are technology illiterate. The problem of drug and substance abuse finds its way deep in the heart of the society. Drug counseling programs have been the golden angels that seek to mitigate the adverse effect of drug and substance abuse. The challenge is however on the sensitization of the society on the demerits of drug and substance abuse especially to the young generation.
This project is specifically focused on tackling the problem and dreadful infection of drug and substance abuse from all angles possible. Unlike other drug counseling models done by other researchers who basically developed from secondary hypothesis on drug abuse, this project aims to interact with both drug addicts and non-addicts to establish the real condition from both an addict standpoint and a non-addict point. This project has hence been designed in an interactive way that tackles the problem of drug and substance abuse from either sides of the board. The addicts still have their candid reasons to back up their dependency on the life-threatening drugs. Beyond the criticism of non-addicts there are some medicinal facts of the so called “dread-drugs” that need be explained to extensively to the society. The prime objective of this research is to give the addicts a real sense of belonging in a special way that will fund the fight against drug and substance abuse from with its own territory.
This fight requires not only stringent policies and funds. In fact the most effective arsenal to deal with the challenge of drug and substance abuse is through making sense to the addicts on the negative and health-threatening risks affiliated with drug and substance abuse. Drug counseling platforms have greatly focused on the hypothetical world hence losing the battle to seasoned and passionate drug addicts. The tasks of this project are hence to fill in the gap created by preceding projects. Direct interaction with drug addicts will form and important part of finding the ultimate solution. Arrests and re-arrests are the legal strategies applied by different governments across the globe. Apparently this has been the greatest failure that exposes drug addicts in to unfair and hostile environments hence amplifying the depression levels of these addicts. This project is developed with an objective of handling the challenges faced by our teens and youth at the harmful hand of drug addict. It is therefore a project that is not aimed to fulfill the hypothetical goals especially in the academics world. On the contrary it is a research that focuses on bettering the livelihood of the society at large by eradicating a real disease that is gradually degrading the moral values of the society. The tasks of this project might therefore not meet the academic expectations of a specific award.
This project is facilitated by data collected from a random sampling method where 200 people where sampled randomly from the five regions across the globe. Each region provided 40 individuals to come up with the representative sample of 200 people. Out every 40 people, 10 of them where teens, 5 were youths of 19-27 years of age and the remaining 5 were parent the society is built from the family set up. The inclusion of the family institution is hence very important in determining the way forward out of this dreaded venom of drug addiction. Questionnaires and interviews will be quite vital at this stage. Interviews will be applied to understand the first hand information while questionnaires will be utilized to evade victimization. Young addicts often do their stuff in camera out of the fear and respect they still have for their folks questionnaires will hence create the independence required to establish the real source of the drug and substance abuse. This project is conducted on the grounds of authenticity and honesty. This project does not segregate any person on the grounds of gender, sex of economic ability. This is project build for the general welfare of our community hence the contribution of everyone is highly important. After all the problem of drug and substance abuse is not a selective epidemic that chooses on who where, when and how to attack. On the contrary, it is an untimely epidemic that not only gradually erodes the morals of the society but even on a higher level of danger cripples the future prospect of a society by destroying the energetic portion of the society.
Challenges during the project process
The projected problem of this research is the dogmatic cultures and indigenous practices upheld between different societies. Take for instance in the African set up where male chauvinism has been the order of the day. In modern day world, technology has completely taken over the young generation. This has been a major source of rivalry between the elderly and the young generation. This antagonism has hence place researchers in dilemma in the quest to establish the problem of drug abuse. Economic imbalance, political instability and religious differences are real challenges in this particular project. As a project prepared to meet the international standards and aid in dealing with the problem of drug and substance abuse.
Despite these challenges the project will indeed hand in substantial support in the fight against drug and substance abuse. As a modern researcher, the need to harmonize my project with the emerging trends is quite important. The old folks on the other hand are completely blind folded in the technology world. This project will therefore require massive reconsiderations on what technology to apply where and when. These challenges will therefore give me serious challenges in determining the most appropriate course of action. the challenges will nonetheless not frustrate my efforts to find a long term solution to the drug and substance abuse.
Finance will be required to instigate the success of this project. The table below summarizes the financial requirements for this project.
