Community Education

For individuals suffering from addiction, it causes physical and mental health problems, decline in work and study performance, damage to family relationships, disruption of the social order, and so on. To further understand addiction, Tung Wah Group of hospitals conducted a study from 2009 to 2010. It revealed that among 266 service recipients with single addiction over half of the individuals were suffering from co-morbid mental disorders, including depression, anxiety and schizophrenia. In addition, approximately 40% of service recipients were addicted to two or more subjects. Alarmingly, the percentage of multiple addictions among younger age groups was 16, in which it was higher than the others.

Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Integrated Centre on Addiction Prevention and treatment (ICAPT) provides comprehensive and one-stop addiction treatment services as well as community education programs. The programs aim at establishing positive thinking and confidence, and enhancing the ability of individuals to cope in the community. A series of prevention programs is designed for the needs of youth at risk and high-risk industries.
