College of Pharmacy Participates in N3m Y2thr Campaign Against Prescription Drug Abuse

The College of Pharmacy has participated in "n3m y2thr" - Yes, it affects, in response to the awareness campaign launched by the Advisor to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, Emir of Makkah HRH Prince Khalid Al-Faisal against prescription drugs abuse. This campaign seeks to raise the youth and adolescents' awareness, as they have notice to take some psycho-neurological drugs to attain ecstasy.

In this seven-weeks campaign with its three strategic stages, the College of Pharmacy seeks to enhance awareness, thinking and culture via a number of awareness programs, targeting youth and adolescents, and update them with dangers of such drugs, in addition to raising awareness of dispensaries and pharmacies giving these drugs.

The College will publish a guide on such drugs whose addiction brings about untold psycho-neurological trauma, as well as short movies shared on social media. Supervised by the Emirate of Makkah, the College will also take part in field campaigns at the University, schools and malls.
