ADULTS can also help prevent, recognise and assess drug use and associated issues. However, teachers must first receive effective training in drug awareness.. Drug awareness training programs benefit not only the teachers who participate, but students, pupils their families and the greater community. Children often spend more waking hours at school and around their teachers than at home with their parents; as such, teachers who are able to recognise the signs of drug abuse are often the first line of assistance for that child. Students might feel more comfortable talking about their personal issues with a trusted teacher than with a parent, and teachers trained in dealing with drug abuse issues might have a better chance at success in assisting the young person in obtaining help or medical referrals.
