A step in the right direction

As parents and carers we want our children to be safe. But are you up to date with recent legislation, health care studies and agencies that can help you with alcohol or drug-related issues?

While many parents and peers may have an idea of certain drugs and their dangers, the introduction of newer forms of drugs and their different legal status may make the issue of tackling the subject with children more challenging.  

Young people may drink or take drugs to fit in, as a result of peer pressure, or a form of escapism from stress and anxiety.  Parents and guardians have a vital role to play in protecting children and young people and being positive role models.  By questioning their own perception on alcohol and drugs, both legal and illegal, parents and guardians can make all the difference in informing their children of the issues they face.

Use this site to view relevant information concerning drugs and alcohol. Simply by reading it, you are already one step closer to making the right choices, for you and your children.
