CHAPTER ONE

Introduction

  1. Background to the Study

The success of any organization depends largely on the level of the employee‟s commitment towards achieving the goals of the organization. Due to the fact that manufacturing industries won‟t hire adult to work, because of the requirement that can only be carried out by those that are still in their early age, this has made more youth to be in the work place, but still not performing their jobs to the satisfaction of their employers due to the intake of substance in an irresponsible way. The economic impacts of substance abuse to business or industry have been traditionally difficult to measure. Many costs are hidden by general absenteeism or illness “unnoticed” lack of productivity, or inability or reluctance to link substance abuse directly with causes of accidents. Substances abuse cost to a business may be both direct and indirect. The impact of substance abuse that have been reported often focus on four major issues, which are; premature death/fatal accidents, injuries/accidents rates, absenteeism/extra sick leave and loss of production.

Amongst all forms of substance abuse, this research work will be limited to alcoholism because it‟s the most rampant substance. Alcohol is the most widely used and abused drug among adolescents, and it causes serious potentially life threatening most widely used and abused drug among adolescents, and it causes serious potentially life threatening problems for this population. Nevertheless, Since the early times, herbs,  leaves  and plants have been  use  to  heal  and control disease.

Youths, prefer an  autonomous  and  independent  life  that  is  free  from  adult control,  there  by engaging in various delinquent acts (drug abuse,  rape,  robbery,  cultism and  vandalism)  that are dangerous to the work place, home, community, school and the nation as a whole.
