GhOne Television News Senior news editor Nana Aba Anamoah has received some preliminary results in her effort to bring a stop to the incessant abuse of Tramadol among the youth in Ghana.
Some months ago, the outspoken television personality as part of her “End Tramadol Abuse” campaign with GhOne Television did a documentary on a 17-year-old boy identified as Kofi who was addicted to the abuse of Tramadol.
The end Tramadol Abuse campaign team was at St. Kizito Catholic Church in Nima to educate the youth on the effects of drug and that was where they first encountered Kofi.
Checks show that the approved dosage for patch of Tramadol is 50 milligrams but developments recorded show Ghanaians are taking in 100 to 250 milligrams of the drug. The reason(s) for taking these unapproved drugs are diverse.
Interactions by GHOne with some Tramadol users show that whereas some of them take the drug to give them strength to work extra hours, others also feel the drug helps them have fun for prolonged hours with their partners.
Kofi, just like thousands of other youths hooked on the painkiller had no idea of the repercussions of Tramadol abuse and had no intentions of putting a stop to it any time soon.
According to GHOne’s Nana Aba Anamoah, after taking Kofi through series of educations and on the harmful effects of Tramadol abuse, Kofi has since been reformed and has been completely off the drug for the past two months.
Completely changed Kofi was taken out by Bola Ray, managing director of GHOne for shopping according to a tweet from Nana Aba Anamohs, Kofi will be starting school in a couple of months. Kofi used the moment to express his gratitude to Bola Ray.
