The SAM course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to prevent, recognise and respond to First Aid emergencies that may result from alcohol and other drug use.

The course covers drugs and their classifications, effects and the central nervous system; risk factors for overdose; signs and symptoms of an overdose; how to respond to an overdose and information on harm reduction strategies. The course runs for 3 hours but has flexibility for time constraints and can be adapted for different groups dynamics.
