Times are a Changing

Over the past few months Warwick Drew and myself, from the First Step Program, have delivered over forty sessions of a ten minute update/ snapshot on:

  • drug and alcohol issues
  • current drug trends
  • a street perspective
  • Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District Drug & Alcohol related services
  • Blood borne virus awareness

The topics have been that interesting and due to a barrage of questions, all talks have gone over ten minutes and have proven to be extremely popular with services and organisations.

So…if your team want an update on the above issues in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, contact me on 0411 408 719 or 42751529 or …….. you ring, we bring.

We have mastered the art of condensing this information to meet the demanding needs of services within the local area. Well, almost mastered.

Our view is…. Learning + Fun + relevant information = understanding.
