Drugs and Alcohol

People take drugs or drink alcohol for many different reasons.
But it's impossible to predict accurately what effects alcohol or drugs will have.
Much depends on the user's mood and their surroundings, as well as the quality and quantity of the drug.
The risks linked to drug taking and alcohol use mean it's important to get your hands on information you can trust.

You should get time at school to talk about drugs and alcohol, your attitude towards them, their effects, and the law.
If you have any questions, or there's any help you need about drug and alcohol use
( yours or that of a friend or someone in your family ),
there are people you can call for confidential advice and support.
