Drugs/Alcohol

Education on the subject of drugs and alcohol is important for any young person. Young people, however, will most likely know more about the risks of drugs and alcohol than any other risk behaviours we cover. This is due to the fact that drinking and smoking are prevelant behaviours in society and that their risks are well researched.

 

Informed Plus focuses on the behaviour behind taking drugs and alcohol, rather than the risks with taking them as we want young people to understand why people do it and to get themselves to think about the behaviour itself.
