/ Drugs Awareness Education Programmes for Teenagers
(normally 6 weeks duration)
The Programme can be delivered
within the relevant Community or Organisationís base.
The methods used to deliver the programmes, include factual
presentations and group discussions focusing on how Alcohol and other
Drugs impact on the individual, health, family, peers and Communities.
Participants are asked to focus on the reasons why young people
experiment with alcohol and other drugs. External factors such as peer
pressure and media exposure are examined. Underlying issues such as
being bullied or being depressed are also explored and the dangers of
using alcohol or other drugs in these circumstances are highlighted,
as well as potential situations they may face when out socialising,
and how best to deal with these.
The importance of saying NO! and being able to stand up for oneís self
and ones opinion is highlighted and sessions are also used to signpost
young people towards a variety of help agencies.
On completion of the course a presentation night is held and
participants are awarded certificates which can go towards their
records of achievements.
