DREAM- Drug Rehabilitation Education and Mentoring

Drug Rehabilitation Education and Mentoring (DREAM) is a rights-based initiative of BREADS started in November 2021, which aims to empower lakhs of children and youth to dream beyond drugs. DREAM specifically focuses on children, especially adolescents and youth, who can easily fall prey to drug abuse.

DREAM aims to prevent substance use and other addictions among school and college students through awareness creation, counselling and deaddiction services across 10 districts in Kerala: Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha, Kottayam, Ernakulam, Thrissur, Wayanad, Kozhikode, Kannur, and Kasaragod. The programme collaborates closely with the Government departments in Kerala for more effective intervention. The dream of DREAM is to enable 400,000 school students and 120,000 college students to say NO to substance use and break free of any addictions.



    The DREAM Process
  • Empower children and youth from low and middle-income families with information in schools and colleges
  • Enable them to make firm choices for good health and better futures through professional counselling services
  • Provide subsidised residential deaddiction services for young people who need them
  • Equip teachers, parents, volunteers, and local community with training and awareness to support the young people in their care
  • Support the formation of Vimukthi clubs in schools and colleges
  • Sensitise and collaborate with local NGOs, government, institutional heads, and law enforcement agencies to strengthen social and legal structures for a drug-free society

  • Activities for reaching these objectives are:
  • School-level awareness training
  • College-level awareness training
  • Training for school and college teachers (mentors)
  • Training for school/college students as ambassadors
  • Awareness seminar for the parents
  • District-level advocacy campaigns
  • Training for the volunteers
  • Training for the project staff and volunteers
  • Counselling services for the teens and youths
