Vaping and Drug Education for Parents

Paul Dillon has been working in the area of drug education for more than 25 years. Through his own business, Drug and Alcohol Research and Training Australia (DARTA) he has been contracted by many agencies and organisations across the country to give regular updates on current drug trends within the community. He continues to work with many school communities across the country to ensure that they have access to good quality information and best practice drug education.

In 2009 his best-selling book for parents ‘Teenagers, Alcohol and Drugs‘ was published and has since been released internationally, being translated into several languages. With a broad knowledge of a range of content areas, Paul regularly provides media comment and is regarded as a key social commentator in Australia, appearing on a wide range of television programs including Sunrise, TODAY and The Project discussing topical issues. Paul also has a blog where he discusses topical issues of the day and addresses some of the questions and queries he is regularly asked by those attending his presentations.
