”The use of psychoactive drugs especially among youths, is becoming an issue of concern.

”On daily basis, the hospital receives between three to five mental cases mostly related to drug abuse.”

He said that almost all the patients were males between ages 13 and 55.

Vandi advised parents to inculcate good moral upbringing in their children, to enable them to stay away from drugs.

He said that the hospital lacked modern equipment and adequate personnel and urged the state and Federal Government to support the hospital in these areas.
