Our international #EduMapProject team would like to present the fifth chapter “Short and long-term effects of substance abuse” of the upcoming Handbook for Substance Abuse.
Here’s some statistics about European youth
Around 47% admit to regularly using alcohol
1 out of 6 European students (around 17%) admit to have used sedatives or sleeping pills
4% admit to have used painkillers “wanting to get high”
More than 3% of students state to have tried New Psychoactive Substances
Our handbook will be accessible to teachers, family members, youth workers, social workers, volunteers and anyone interested in this topic. It will be available in Lithuanian, Greek, Turkish, Finnish, German and Slovenian languages.
