Drug & Alcohol Awareness Resource Guide


The Drug & Alcohol Guide has been designed by the SFNI Programme Lead as a resource for Scouters to use as an introduction to developing understanding and knowledge around perceptions and attitudes toward addiction and touches upon topics relating to caffeine, nicotine and alcohol use and addiction.

This resource has been developed for use across the majority of sections. However, it would best suit those aged 11-14 as the resource should compliment areas of learning engaged by young people within the formal education setting.

The guide can be delivered as a complete series of sessions or as stand alone sessions to compliment other work that you are undertaking. It may also be used as a framework to which you may wish to add to or develop for an older audience.

If you have any questions or would like to receive additional support and guidance in the use of this resource email programmelead@sfni.org
