CHAPTER ONE 1.0lntroduction In this chapter the researcher is going to deal with the background information to the Study, statement of the problem, purpose of the study, objectives of the study, significance of the study, conceptual diagram and operation definitions of terms. 1.1 Background information to the study Globally, drugs abuse and addition to alcohol, nicotine and illegal substances cost Americans up to half a trillion dollars a year, considering their combined medical, economical, criminal and social impact. Every year abuse of illicit drug and alcohol contributed to the death of more than I 00,000 Americans, while tobacco is linked to an estimated 440,000death per year(Nora, 2007). The' WOs and 2000s were time of worked increase in the use of illicit drugs. During the social and political unrest of these years, many youths turned to marijuana, stimulants and hallucinogens. Lert (2002) in the newspaper scholastic classroom magazine, he gives a clear preview on America's drug abuse problem and how it affects the economic position of a country. The author of this article in the newspaper has suggested early signs of a person who have been abused and a possible remedy. The author (Lert) further mentioned that, though the wife may abuse the husband or vice versa, the children was affected negatively either directly or indirectly. The author further acknowledges that, societal morals and norms have deteriorated hence people lack guiding principles on what is good or bad, right or wrong. This newspaper is reliable and effective in research because of the in-depth information on the issue of drug and alcohol abuse. Infact, the author have found out that drug abuse is highly correlated with domestic violence making it reliable because it was used to provide solutions and a conclusion on all facts related to this topic. This magazine is therefore important when writing a proposal especially on the effects of drugs and how it contributes to the domestic violence. The author of this article in the magazine targets all people in the society (young, old, married and singles) because drug and alcohol abuse affects all people either directly or indirectly. This article will therefore be useful in trying to identify the major challenges facing most families which are under the influence of drugs.
