OCN NI Entry Level Award in Substance Misuse (Entry 3)
Substance misuse, the harmful use of substances including drugs and alcohol for non-medical purposes, can prove damaging and even fatal to those who abuse them. Awareness programmes can help people learn about substance misuse and know what the effects might be.
The OCN NI Entry Level Award in Substance Misuse Awareness (Entry 3) will help learners understand what is meant by drugs/alcohol awareness. They will learn about the differences between legal/illegal substances and the possible consequences of their misuse. The OCN NI Level 1 and 2 Awards in Substance Misuse Awareness will enable learners to understand the difference between legal/illegal substances and where to seek support.
