This course offers you the chance to update your knowledge on drugs and addiction. In it you’ll learn about ‘legal highs’, why drug addiction occurs, and what the law says about possession and supply as well as the impact drugs can have, how people are treated for drug abuse and addiction and how you can best respond to someone who has problems in this area.

On completion you will automatically get a certificate, with your name, the CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.

The course contains additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide.

The course itself has added to my knowledge on this subject. The scenarios and quizzes are brilliant at the end of each section as it does make you stop and think before answering which is an added bonus. I will definitely be doing more of your courses and letting others know about Me Learning so they can join in also.

I was impressed with the information provided in such a short course, the fact you cannot change your answers once entered is also a good way of recognising what information you need to revisit.
