“The study pack follows a logical structure, from explaining the language and jargon associated with the subject matter, an exploration of the types and definitions of drugs, how to identify and treat symptoms and deal with emergencies, and an exhaustive section dealing with the physical and mental effects of prolonged drug use. It also examines the way drugs affect different body types, differing levels of physical fitness and psychological tolerance. Finally, treatments and counselling are looked at in some detail, and the manual makes students aware of organisations and processes that potentially enable detoxification and “kicking the habit”
COURSE REVIEW by Bella63
“I have found the course a great way to further my development whilst working full time. I would recommend it to friends and family. I would suggest that new learners set themselves a strict timeline of when they plan to work on assignments and stick to it as much as possible. This is because I found it quite difficult to finish all the work in time whilst working full time. I am please to have completed my course and would recommend my course and the Cambridge Open College overall.”
