The Parents guide to Drugs

The Public Health Department have recently revised the ‘Parents Guide to Drugs’ resource to help support you. As a parent or guardian you have an important role to play in helping young people make informed decisions about drugs and reducing any potential harm that may arise through drug use, be it illegal or legal.

The new revised edition has been up-dated to include information on all the most available new psychoactive substances. These new psychoactive substances, many of which are now illegal and have serious side effects, are often referred to (inappropriately) by manufacturers, dealers and users as legal highs.

This guide will help you understand the effects of drugs and their use. It is based on the latest best practice and contains practical advice about what you can actually do as a parent, whether your children are using drugs or not.
