Drug Conversation: How to talk to your child about drugs

This is a book for parents about how to raise the thorny issue of drugs with their teenage children.

Drugs have never been more available and your child is almost certain to come across them at some point, often with little idea of the risks. We need to talk with our children about drugs - talking before they come across drugs can help them make better choices - but it's not always straightforward. This book gives you advice on ways to have this important conversation.

The book will provide parents with clear, up to date, accurate information about ‘psychoactive’ drugs (chemical substances which alter the functioning of the brain, causing changes in the way we think, feel and behave) and their effects. It gives plenty of information to help you understand how drugs work in the brain, what problems they cause and which treatments are most effective. It covers: what drugs are, who uses them and why; how teens use drugs; synthetics (legal highs); plus, how to detect if your child is using drugs and what to do about it.
