Nobody who participates in a course at CICD can be involved with non-prescription drugs. All euphoriant and narcotic substances are strictly forbidden. This applies whether you are at the College, travelling, on holiday or in Africa/India during travel and placement ... in short, it applies all the time.
Former drug users must have been free of heavy drugs for a minimum of 18 months before their course starts.
Any participant who does not comply with this policy is no longer on the course.
We choose to have our College free of drugs because we want everyone to have a safe and productive environment. Different drugs to different things ... but they all affect the brain. They may make you feel high, low, speeded up, slowed down, etc. Drugs affect the brain’s function – resulting in changed is perception, mood, consciousness and behaviour. Drugs mess with your brain’s wiring and signals and that is something that we do not want.
Learning about and investigating the present-day reality will be both physically and mentally challenging... being an activist and fighting shoulder to shoulder with the poor is even more demanding – so you need to be 100% “fit for fight”.
