STEPS is a councelling serivce for young people. This report aims to ascertain the need for a STEPS centre in Monaghan through a series of 782 questionnaires and queries attitudes on parents, schools, smoking, alcohol and drug use. The respondents aged from 12 to 21, with 46% male and 54% female. 55% of respondents said they consumed alcohol. Of these 89% were under 18 years old. In terms of drug use, 16% said they had used drugs. 42% of these were under 18. Of those who did take drugs, 50% said they had taken them as they 'wanted to experiment'. 57% of those interviewed said they had smoked cigarettes. Substance use was listed as a major problem for all respondents, as were bullying, family problems, loneliness and relationship problems. The report concludes that a STEPS centre in Monaghan would be of tremendous benefit to the youth of the area.
