Hope Trust is India’s leading treatment provider for psychological wellness and addiction treatment. Dr. Prasad V A, a medical officer, treatment coordinator and the head of the inpatient centre at Hope Trust addressed the students of Grades VIII, IX and XI on the 10th of December. He briefed the students about how the brain becomes the first and the most affected organ in cases of substance abuse of any type and how it leads to changes in behaviour and eventually the life course itself. In the Q and A session, relevant questions were asked by the students to which Dr.Prasad answered in a very apt manner. Overall, it was a necessary and informative session for the curious adolescents.
