Drug use is often a way to suppress negative feelings, painful past and current experiences, hunger and difficult family situations. Drugs commonly used with these Cambodian youth include inhalants (glue) and methamphetamine which are both widely available and inexpensive.
Our 24-hour Drop-in Center for youth ‘at risk’ or dependent on substances is a safe drug free place that offers daily access to hot nutritious meals, shower facilities, sports and counseling.
