Course Description

The premise of this Alcohol and Drug Abuse course is that prevention is the only true hope of solving our country’s problems in these areas. Parents, teachers and counsellors are in the best positions to affect children’s knowledge and attitudes to the abuse of alcohol and other drugs.

Alcohol and drug abuse has reached epidemic proportions in Ireland. Some experts believe that if we haven’t lost the war on alcohol and drugs, we are losing it – fast.
