Eligibility and Audience

This is an E-Learning Course run by Me Learning.

This course is intended for all children’s workforce practitioners and parents and carers of children and young people in West Sussex.

This course is primarily aimed at parents and/or carers of children and young people in West Sussex but other family members over 18 can also complete the course.

Course Overview

Substance misuse is a complex issue, affecting not only the individuals involved but their friends, families and the people they come into contact with.

Substance abuse can result in lowered educational outcomes, compromised health and danger to the public and affect not only the user but the people around them too.

This course offers you the chance to update your knowledge on drugs and addiction. In it you’ll learn about ‘legal highs’, why drug addiction occurs, and what the law says about possession and supply as well as the impact drugs can have, how people are treated for drug abuse and addiction and how you can best respond to someone who has problems in this area.

On completion you will automatically get a certificate, with your name, the CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.

The course contains additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide.

Course Outcomes

You will learn why some people get addicted, and with what likely impact (on the body, mind and on their families). And you will understand more about addiction (how can you recognise it, and what is the best treatment).
