This Drug Education and Prevention Programme for primary school seeks to explore the topic of drug use and misuse with participants in an age appropriate, open and honest way. The programme is designed to be delivered using youth work methodologies by trained youth / drugs education workers.

The programme aims to redress common drug misconceptions and problematic normative beliefs among participants. In addition the programme aims to correctly inform participants of the effects of drugs known to them and the harms such drugs can cause. The programme also aims to equip participants with new skills and knowledge that may enable them to make informed healthy life choices. Developing life skills is an intrinsic element of this intensive programme, which seeks to make participants aware of how they make decisions and how they respond to difficult situations. The programme seeks to make participants more aware of harmful or unsafe situations in relation to drugs and alcohol, and provide them with information and skills to stay safe.
