Welcome to the website of Drug Education: Ethics & Effectiveness, an Australian research project exploring young people’s beliefs about drug use, drug education and how they match up with the concerns of the professionals who design and do drug education such as teachers and researchers.
This project consists of two key parts: (1) interviews with young people and (2) interviews with drug education stakeholders. By speaking with both these groups, this project aims to inform efforts to educate young people about alcohol and other drugs and reduce potential harms.
The young people who take part in this research will get the opportunity to discuss their opinions about young people’s alcohol or other drug use. By speaking with young people themselves, this project seeks to improve understandings of their views on drugs, alcohol and drug education and the related issues they face in their everyday lives.
