Education is the key to prevention with volatile substance abuse (VSA).
Re-Solv believes in giving young people the information they need to make informed decisions about risk-taking behaviours such as substance misuse.
Support we can offer in education:
- School sessions either on solvent abuse (including nitrous oxide), or on Teen Drugs (including alcohol and cannabis). Find information here about our school sessions.
- Teaching resources, lesson plans and guidance on integrating VSA into your PSHE curriculum.
- Materials for raising parental awareness of VSA. See our parent guide here.
- Guidance on incorporating VSA awareness into your school’s drug policy.
Prevention and harm reduction for older students
Re-Solv runs outreach and drop-in sessions for sixth forms, colleges and students in higher education. Please get in touch if you would like us to attend an event, provide a session or tailor a programme to suit your needs.
We are also happy to run nitrous oxide harm reduction sessions in the run-up to the festival season. (Nitrous oxide use is most common among 16-24 year olds.)
Just phone 01785 817885 or email for details.
Community-based prevention programmes
Re-Solv has worked on awareness-raising and harm-reduction projects with communities in Glasgow, Stoke-on-Trent and, currently, in Staffordshire.
