Alcohol & drugs

A resource package aimed at exploring how alcohol and drugs can put you at risk and how you can stay safe.

Summary

This lesson plan amalgamates the Public Health England Rise Above materials on alcohol with bespoke materials provided by Avon & Somerset. It also looks at the factors that lead to experimentation with alcohol and drugs.

It does not focus on the different types of drugs available and their effects as this information is freely available on sites such as www.talktofrank.com.

In addition, the government’s National Drug Strategy draws on a growing body of evidence to advise that information-only/legal consequence approaches are ineffective; instead a broader preventative approach is recommended which focuses more on engagement.
