Parental workshop on how to talk to your kids about drugs.

About this Event

Having the "Talk" with your child can be daunting and having a conversation about drug use can have both Parents and Teens wanting to run for the hills. It can be uncomfortable and as a Parent/Guardian you may not have any idea where to start - so start here.

This workshop will focus on why kids might experiment with drugs, what you can do to help open up the conversation at home as well as some tips and tricks to get your kids engaged and talking.

There will also be time for a Q&A session. This free webinar will boost your confidence in opening a conversation with your child that will save their lives.

About Nicole

My story began in Jan 2016 when my only brother Alex went to a house party in the Greenmount area, Cork City and ingested a synthetic substance believing it to be a less potent drug called 2-CP. Alex had thought he had done his research on the substance he was trying. He was 18 years of age and had a lot of plans for his future. Alex ended up taking a huge dose of the lethal drug known as N-bomb which resulted in him being brought to Cork University Hospital where he never regained consciousness and subsequently 4 days later sadly passed away after being pronounced brain-dead.

I gave up my career as a Marine & Plant Engineer to come home and build Alex’s Adventure. Over the last 4 years I have traveled the length and breadth of the country visiting schools and delivering my workshop educating and sharing how our choices can impact our lives forever. To date I have visited over 60 schools, colleges, youth clubs & businesses and have delivered this workshop to over 6,000 students nationwide. From this life changing experience Alex’s Adventure, the drug education program was born. My team & I developed a brand-new programme that aims to not only help students learn more about substance misuse but also to up skill people in the community and empower them to be able to do what I can do.

I have been facilitating drug education workshops for over four years. I have a degree in Marine & Plant Engineering, a Certificate in Training Development & Design and a Certificate in Substance Misuse and Addiction Studies.
