Drug And Alcohol

We all like to have fun, but when it comes to work, or more importantly your health, you need to think about what you are putting into your body, and how that's affecting you in both the short and long term.

About this course

We want you to make the most of your job opportunities, and this means ensuring you are able to work to your full potential.

Learning about drugs and alcohol keeps you safe and healthy in the workplace and allows you to perform at full productivity, which is a win-win for everyone.

  • The different types of drugs and how they affect the body, both physically and emotionally
  • The impact drugs and alcohol can have on your ability to get (and keep!) a job
  • Where to look for help with drug or alcohol problems for yourself or someone you know
