An account of 12 to 17-year-olds’ drug and alcohol behaviour is discussed in an interview with Sergeant Seamus O’Neill, juvenile liaison officer in Mayorstone Garda Station.

The series of interviews also features the services provided to those who are impacted by substance misuse, according to David McPhillips of the Community Substance Misuse Team.
