For many young people, sexual activity and the use of alcohol and other drugs are entwined, while the support and education we offer them often treats these issues in isolation.Drawing heavily on the perspectives of young people, professionals and research, Sex, Alcohol and Other Drugs provides a much needed foundation for developing policy and practice that is relevant to young people's lives and addresses the issues in a holistic fashion.It explores young people's opinions about the support they want, and the implications of this for policy and practice. Case studies and practical ideas are used throughout to illustrate how practitioners can address the links between sex, alcohol and other drugs with young people.
