Schools

We help schools to provide children and families the safest environment.

The young learn easily, but they lack the skills to cope in uncertain and unfamiliar situations. They are at high risk of coming to life-lasting physical and psychological harm from alcohol and drugs. Our own data reveals that most young adults begin consuming substances in their last years of secondary education. Therefore, tackling alcohol and drug education in primary and secondary schools is crucial to nurture healthy young adults.

ADEC can help directly with educational interventions, for both staff and students, as well as policy consultancy. Our epidemiological research services can bring you meaningful insights, helping you make better decisions for your school. We are also pioneering research on how to integrate the academic curriculum with substances awareness.

We can help schools creating a safe environment for youngsters, staff and families. Our interventions ensure that children are equipped with the necessary mental toolkit to thrive in their future and minimise mental health issues. We also provide schools and families with the necessary support to manage drug-related harms.
