School Drugs Education

Salus have been delivering effective drugs education and incident management services in Kent for over 10 years.

Drugs education

Research shows that effective, planned school drugs education has a positive impact on children and young people by;

  • Raising knowledge about drugs
  • Challenging attitudes to drugs and drugs use
  • Challenging misinformation and myths
  • Developing risk assessment and decision making skills

Schools that take a holistic approach to drugs education and incident management, create an ethos in school where students have the knowledge and ability to accurately assess harm and the confidence to ask for help if needed.

Schools support
