Description:
The aim of this publication is to bring together the wealth of knowledge, research and pioneering work presented to delegates at the Health Education Bureau conferences. "Education Against Addiction", November 1979, and "International Workshop on Drug Education", November 1982. We feel the papers presented and the issues raised deserve a wider and more enduring audience than was possible at conference level. The conferences have shown that no magic formula exists for effective health education, They also showed that education against addiction is a responsibility which is community-based and which should be shared by families, schools, health professionals, legal systems and government departments. They pointed to the need for a specific component on drug education to be included in a formal health education programme in schools and they identified that the essence of drug education is related to developing young people's self esteem, assertiveness and decision making skills. Each conference made recommendations for action and indicated a direction for education against substance abuse in Ireland. Collectively, they present a basis for a remedial, preventive and educational strategy which, if acted upon, would be a true professional response to the problems of substance abuse in Ireland.
