It is currently estimated that problems related to alcohol and drug consumption rank among the world’s major public health problems and constitute serious harm to human health, welfare and security.Uganda is no exception to this trend. The country was once rated to have the highest per capital consumption of alcohol in the world. (WHO – 2004). Use of narcotic drugs is also on the rise. Previously only traditional drugs like cannabis were consumed.
