Alcohol and Drugs Awareness Program

Alcohol and other drugs (AOD) can have a significant and detrimental impact on the lives of many people. Even if you don’t use these substances, AOD can affect your life in a number of ways.

A drug is any substance (excepting food and water) which, when taken alters your bodies response and function to what is otherwise normal without the effect of the drug. Drugs can be legal substances such as alcohol, caffeine and tobacco; or illegal substances such as cannabis, ecstasy, cocaine and heroin.


Effects of Drugs

It is important to understand the experience you have as a result of drugs may be affected by any one of the following:


  • Your mood, physical size, gender, personality and whether you have food in your stomach
  • Whether other drugs or alcohol have been taken
  • The amount taken, the frequency taken and how it is used
  • The strength and purity of the drug
  • The environment that you are in, such as with friends, on your own, or in a social setting or before an activity such as driving.



Why do people use drugs?

Reasons for drug use are different for everyone but some of the reasons might include:

  • To forget about problems
  • Out of curiosity, or a form of escapism
  • Peer and social pressures
  • To relieve boredom and stress
  • To remove personal responsibility for decisions


What can you do if you need help or know of someone that may need assistance?

It’s important to realise that there is a lot of help available.

All you have to do is take the first step.

A great place to start is with the Youth Drug and Alcohol Advice Service  (YoDAA). At their website there is an online tool that helps you work out where you are at with drug and alcohol use. 


Mobo Group provides assistance on Kangaroo Island at our Kingscote office through the Youth Drug & Alcohol awareness program and will provide advocacy to all participants registered with any of our programs.
