Alcohol and other drug use

How do you decide what you want to do with your body? What might encourage you to take a risk? To use alcohol or other drugs? Use them dangerously? If you started to get into trouble with use, how would you know? How would your friends know? What help might you need and where would you get it? What information do you think you want and where would you get this? What responsibility do people have for looking after each other? What would you do for a friend who seemed to be in trouble with substance use? Or in trouble with life generally? This workshop looks at use of alcohol and drugs from the perspective of the choices people make, why those choices might be made, the influences at work in the lives of young people, and how young people can keep themselves and those around them safe. Information on substances is set within this overall context.
