This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to gain knowledge of the causes and issues surrounding substance misuse. We aim to introduce you to the dangers and risks surrounding substance misuse.

We will look at the harmful effects of substance misuse as well as where to get support and advice. We will look at the risks and ways to protect individuals as well as the barriers to making healthy choices.
