7p Drinking, drugs and smoking
While not all young people smoke, drink regularly or misuse drugs, some do; and, if they do, this could manifest itself on an off-site visit, especially a residential one. Also some young people may be tempted, either through curiosity or peer influence, to use opportunities presented on a residential visit to experiment with these substances.
Managing the potential use/misuse of alcohol, drugs and smoking also applies to adult participants, leaders and helpers. Some of the adults may be regular smokers, drinkers or recreational drug users and their habits and expectations may need to be managed.
This document provides guidance on some of the questions to consider when planning a visit and some strategies for management.
