Drugs Awareness Course

About the Drugs Awareness Certificate

Originally developed by the Wigan Drug Action Team as a short, informative programme for students in schools and colleges, this course will tell you all you need to know about drugs. Drug addiction is a worldwide problem and the only chance we have of stopping it is to educate as many people as possible about drugs and the consequences of taking them.

The course is short; taking approximately 10 hours to complete. Although it’s not our longest programme, the drugs awareness certificate does not skimp on detail. The course material is engaging, interactive and educational and covers everything from the types of substances in circulation, to the effects of substance abuse.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at individuals who want to broaden their understanding of substance abuse and its causes. It is also suitable for people who want to work in health and social care, rehabilitation or counselling roles.

As with all of our courses here at Stonebridge College, we don’t ask that our students have any prior qualifications. In order to enrol, all you need is access to the internet, a computer and the motivation to engage in home study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this online home learning course, you will gain a drugs awareness certificate from Stonebridge College. This certificate will prove to employers that you have an understanding of this topic and are equipped to deal with a number of drug related issues.

If you want to join the fight against substance abuse and help people who have been affected by drugs, you may choose to embark on further distance learning courses, or even attend university. There are lot of jobs in this field which include but are not limited to:

  • Support worker
  • Substance abuse counsellor
  • Drug and alcohol worker
