This resource has been developed to inform and educate parents about illegal drugs and to prevent and reduce harms caused by their use. The best way for young people to avoid harm is to prevent use, delay the onset of use, and to reduce the harm from their own and other people’s use. For example, young people may be affected by an adult or a friend’s drug use. It is important they know how to avoid harm from other people’s use and, where appropriate, to assist themselves or others affected by drug use.

[Positive Choices is an online portal to help school communities access accurate, up-to-date drug education resources and prevention programs. With input from teachers, parents and students across Australia we are compiling resources that are engaging, interactive, and proven to improve student wellbeing.]
