Description:
Drug use, which includes alcohol and cigarettes as well as other drugs, is an area of concern for all in our school community - parents, teachers and the students themselves. Schools are important partners in providing drugs awareness and education. Research has shown that, in combination, classroom education programmes and school drugs policy ensure that drug prevention is more effective. Schools that have developed a strategy for responding to the issues of alcohol, tobacco and drugs are best equipped to respond to incidents as they arise, but also have been shown to be most successful in terms of prevention and education. The Area Health Boards of the Eastern Regional Health Authority recognise and respond to the need to support schools and parents in dealing with drug education and prevention. The Health Promotion Departments have an active role in health education and health promotion in schools and the local Drug Task Forces operate a number of local school init iatives in each area.
