Parent's Booklet on Drug Education


Hong Kong has recently seen an increase in the number of young people abusing drugs. In order to combat this growing trend, it is extremely important to provide youths with the comprehensive drug education required to make well informed decisions. Parents play a vital role in teaching a child about these basic principles. With the sponsorship of the Sedan Chair Race Charities Fund, Community Drug Advisory Council has been able to publish a manual for parents to help guide them when conducting drug education at home.

The Parent's Booklet contains articles on: 1) Sharing from parents and rehabilitated youths; 2) Implementing drug education at home; 3) A Hong Kong police officer's perspective on current issues; 4) Drug Information; 5) Identifying signs of drug abuse; 6) Problems associated with people who have close relationships with drug abusers; 7) Community resources.
