Drugs Awareness

Trainer: Various
Why do people take drugs? It’s a simple enough question, but one that can have very complicated answers. What is true is that different people use drugs for different reasons – for some it may be curiosity or culture, for others it could be pleasure or pain-relief. By exploring the nature of drug use you will gain a clearer understanding of the issues and be better equipped to support those experiencing problems.
