"The pamphlet we are producing tomorrow is an introduction to make both parents and young people aware of the dangers of illegal drugs and the tell-tale signs of abuse. It also provides a list of contact details for local support services, addiction treatment centres, counselling services and the new Dial To Stop Drug Dealing free phone line.
