Schools Program – Triple D Program
The Triple D – Don’t Do Drugs program was developed in 2016 to provide information and knowledge to high school students about the harmful effects of drug and alcohol use. The staff at Wayback have a range of knowledge and have worked with many adults who have been incarcerated and institutionalised partially due to their drug use. We have a desire to share this knowledge with young people and understand that earlier prevention is the key to helping them make informed choices. Many of our clients have said to us in the past “if only someone had told us about the harmful effects of drug use, maybe things would’ve been different!” ………so our aim is simple, if one student can take away something from our program that changes their decision to using drugs; we have been successful!
The Triple D – Don’t Do Drugs program is age appropriate and has been developed to address year 7, year 8 and year 9 students. The program works well with classroom sized groups (20-30 students) and is informative and interactive while also being a bit of fun!
If you are interested in having the team at Wayback come out and discuss Triple D at your school, please call the Social work team on 9633 4800.
