The objective is to teach young people about the harmful effects of alcohol and other drug use, as a key preventative measure in the ongoing effort to address drug related harm.
The sessions are interactive and we encourage questions! The aim is to get the students thinking, talking and involved in the process, and actively developing their own strategies to keep safe.
Our year 10 program continues to build students knowledge and understanding about alcohol and other drugs and the potential harms.
We explore the concept of risk versus gain, and discuss myths associated with drug use.
We reinforce key safety concepts to build on strategies to minimise harm.
Our year 11 and 12 program provide current, fact based information about alcohol and other drugs and dispels myths.
As this age group moves towards achieving their driving license we discuss the impact of alcohol and other drugs on driving.
Our session explores choice - risk - outcome and discusses harm minimisation strategies. We talk about how to support and "look after your mates" while enjoying growing independence.
Parents are the greatest influence on their children, however it is at this time in their teenagers life that parents feel they are losing “control”.
Never under estimate the impact parents can have on their child’s decision making. Research shows that parent disapproval is the number 1 reason teenagers don’t experiment with alcohol and other drugs.
Our parent sessions explore the skills, knowledge and strategies that will help parents to communicate with their teenager about alcohol, other drugs and harm minimisation.
