Drug Abuse Awareness

Overview

Do you remember Miami Vice? It was one of the coolest TV shows in the 80s. But what made it stand out was its hard edge. Scratch the veneer of fast cars, super yachts, and sunshine, and you saw a dark criminal underworld of criminal gangs selling dangerous, hard drugs. Crockett and Tubbs, 2 tough undercover cops, worked tirelessly to clean up the streets of Miami.

In the real world, drugs are still out there – and there’s a range of different types. They come in separate classes too, with slang names and a variety of side effects. Do you know your lucy from your charlie, or your mandy from your tina? If you don’t, then you should, because they’re not your friends.

By the end of this course, you'll be able to:

  • Identify different types of drugs
  • Recognise the effects of drugs
  • Get help to stop taking drugs

Why should I take this course?

If you’re taking drugs or just thinking about it, then this course is for you. But let’s face it, everyone should know the truth about drugs. The more knowledge you have, the better you’re equipped to make the right decisions. You’ll learn to spot different types of recreational drug, recognise the effects they have and get help to stop taking them.
