Learning Outcome


Provide support and understanding for those caught in the grip of an addiction problem by taking our Substance Misuse Awareness course. Misuse of illegal and legal substances can lead to life-affecting addictions and actions by any individual, given the right circumstance and opportunity. This valuable tutorial will guide you towards a greater understanding of the types of substances that can influence a person’s behaviour and the recommended ways for recognising and preventing it.

The online modules are specially crafted to provide a wealth of information regarding the reasons for substance misuse, alongside a comprehensive overview of the potentially damaging items, drugs, liquids, and chemicals. You will gain the knowledge to identify the presence of any medication or alcoholic material in the workplace and community and work towards a programme to help others tackle the resulting problems.
