Highs and Lows
Highs and Lows is a no-nonsense guide to drugs and alcohol, offering honest information to help students make choices that make them feel in control. It explores peer pressure, dependency, supporting others and the law.
It also provides a comprehensive guide to each drug, its effects and implications, so that if a student does decide to try a drug, they are informed and can avoid the dangers.
This guide has been created in collaboration with Become, a charity providing advice and support to children in care and young care leavers.
