Psychoactive substances are substances that, when taken in or administered into one’s system, affect mental processes, e.g. cognition, perception, memory, etc. This term and its equivalent, psychotropic drug, are the most neutral and descriptive term for the whole class of substances, licit and illicit, of interest to drug policy. ‘Psychoactive’ does not necessarily imply dependence-producing, and in common parlance, the term is often left unstated, as in ‘drug use’ or ‘substance abuse’.

As of 26th May 2016, the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016 came into force. This course will give you an understanding on the legislation, penalties, and your role when working with young people who take or may take psychoactive substances.

  5. To recognise the risks of taking psychoactive substances
  6. To recognise the physical and mental health risks

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
