School drug education and the DrugInfo Clearinghouse

Drug education is an ongoing need in our schools, but also a challenging topic for teachers to address. The role schools play is important and valuable because drug use is at the heart of many social and cultural problems, including the road toll, violence, and health costs. The Australian Drug Foundation's DrugInfo Clearinghouse aims to provide a 'one-stop' for drug prevention information, and brings together a wealth of resources and research so that educators can base their work on solid evidence.
