This resource has been developed to inform parents and carers about drugs and alcohol to help prevent and reduce the harms associated with their use. The best way for young people to stay safe from drug and alcohol harms is to avoid or delay the onset of use. Young people may also be affected by an adult or a friend’s drug use so it is important they know how to respond if they or others are affected by drug and alcohol 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.]
