Image & Performance Enhancing Drugs

Society has created a culture and idealisation for perfection.  For some people the desire to fit in with socio-cultural ideals is so strong that they aspire to improve how they look physically and how they perform mentally and sexually to achieve unrealistic standards of beauty, vigour, happiness and intelligence. Find out more about the changing trends in substance misuse and how to work more proactively with image and performance enhancing drugs (IPEDs) on our training course.

Half day courses are £50 per person (No VAT) and are professionally written and continually reviewed to include the latest emerging trends in the field of substance misuse and are mapped to DANOS – Drug and Alcohol National Occupational Standards. The courses are delivered by an experienced trainer and substance misuse practitioner and are fully CPD accredited. A CPD certificate will be issued on completion of the course.

Each delegate receives a FREE copy of our brand new 40 page Drugs & Alcohol – The Facts workbook (which normally retails at £15 per copy). Learn more here
