The Drug Info training program equips staff with a knowledge of drug and alcohol information resources
The Drug Info Workshop training program has been developed for staff in NSW public libraries who provide drug and alcohol information to the public. It equips staff with a knowledge of drug and alcohol information resources and explores the following questions:
- what is a drug?
- which drugs are the most commonly used in Australia?
- what are the effects of drugs on the body and mind?
- what are some of the dangers of mixing alcohol with other drugs?
- where is help available?
- what is a standard drink?
All training notes are available on request, and can be used to train staff in your library. Drug Info staff may also visit libraries to do a three hour training package made up of the Legal Information Workshop and Drug Info awareness training.
To request training notes for the Drug and Alcohol Information Workshop, or annual Update Training, please fill in this form.
