Drug Awareness is an area where continued vigilance and strong systems need to be implemented to provide effective solutions.
This workshop will enhance students’ knowledge of illegal and legal drugs, their effects, uses and misuses. Our approach to illegal drug is to familiarise candidates with the common drugs used, the associated ‘drug litter’ and the effects on drugs users.
This allows you to identify the scale of any problems there may be in their workplace, academic environment, local community and amongst family members and peers.
We also provide strategies to deal with problems associated with controlled drugs. Our approach is to use proactive measures to discourage and prevent drug use and drug dealing.
Alcohol Awareness is an area where continued vigilance and strong systems need to be implemented to provide effective solutions. This workshop will enhance students’ knowledge of alcohol and provides the knowledge required to identify individuals with alcohol problems and respond to their needs with a range on interventions.
For those that consume alcohol and have addiction problems, upon completion of the programme, you will feel a greater sense of control over your own life and others will notice the changes you’ve made in your behaviour. We provide strategies to deal with problems associated with alcohol misuse. Our approach is to use proactive measures to discourage alcohol misuse and harmful drinking.
As part of the programme we use governed and secured samples of substances/materials for visual purposes. This includes a Drug Box with 24 harmless replicas and takes into account recent changes in UK government guidelines and drug culture.
This programme has been developed to provide young people in particular a high level of knowledge and understanding on health issues, effects, consequences, and legislation which surround and affect their age group. The course highlights how these can cause long term physical and psychological effects if not addressed correctly and to seek appropriate support and intervention.
The programme is designed to benefit a range of people, mainly young people but also including social and health care professionals, youth workers, community groups, parents/carers and volunteers. Teachers, and support workers in substance misuse agencies will also find this workshop useful to acquire.
The length of the course is determined by a Training Needs Analysis we carry out to identify the requirements of the client based on the working environment, young people involved and the role of employees within the organisation. This ensures that our courses reflect the client's actual working environment.
