The day suddenly arrives
when, just in order to escape from reality,
you easily get access to the drug.
Once you use it, you are labelled as “offender”.
Yet once you use it,
you can’t stop it even if you know it’s an offense.
you betray your family and friends,
tell lies to them,
lose their trust, and end up being isolated.
Harsh punishment only can’t stop your craving for the drug.
its pleasure deep inside of you will not let you go
and you can think about nothing but drug.
“I’ll never do that again”
Having broken so many promises with your family and friends,
you may be disappointed with yourself, but we have something to tell you.
It is not because of your weakness that you can’t resist the drug.
It is because of
a disease called “drug addiction”
Drug addiction is a disease.
Every disease needs medical treatment.
We Sakyo VPO Association, as volunteers, stand by those who unfortunately committed an offense, and support their rehabilitation.
Drug Addiction is a Disease.
