The biggest problem with Drug Awareness Classes is that those who really need it won't go to it. Being a drug addict myself, I understand how difficult it is to see your problem. Often the drugs and alcohol are perceived as the only answer to all of the difficulties in your life. You can't see that it is this use of drugs and alcohol that is causing many of the problems, and magnifying those that may have nothing to do with the abuse. It is an unfortunate contradiction in the nature of addiction: that which you believe is helping is actually hurting. So when you feel that your life is becoming too difficult you go to the thing that is causing life to be so difficult. Therefore, a drug awareness class doesn't seem like a realistic solution. It seems like a waste of time. Time that you could be spending feeling better in the bar.
