Substance Misuse

Drugs, both legal and illegal, are part of our culture. The use and misuse of these substances is a complex issue. While the number of people with a serious problem is small, their use affects everybody, including their families, friends, communities and society.

This introductory programme is ideal for a wide range of learners who wish to raise their understanding of drugs and how they are misused. The course will help to raise learners’ awareness of the key issues relating to substance use and misuse, as well as the types of drugs available, the effects they have on individuals and society and how people and organisations respond to their use.
