In January 2016 Alex went to a house party in Cork City and tried a synthetic substance believing it to be a less potent drug. He was 18 years old and had a lot of plans for his future. Alex ended up taking a huge dose of the lethal drug known as N-bomb which resulted in him being brought to hospital where Alex never regained consciousness and 4 days later sadly died.
Nicole wanted what happened to her family to never need to happen to another so needlessly again so she decided that Alex would change the world and she would be his catalyst and story teller.
Nicole gave up her career as a Marine & Plant Engineer to come home and build Alex’s Adventure. Over the last 5 years she have traveled the length and breadth of the country visiting schools and delivering her workshop educating and sharing how our choices can impact our lives forever. She has delivered this workshop to over 8500+ students nationwide.
From this life changing experience Alex’s Adventure, the drug education program was born. We developed a brand-new programme that aims to not only help students learn more about substance misuse but also to upskill people in the community and empower them to be able to do what Nicole can do.
Year on year the drug problem gets worse and here are some problems that we have identified through our ongoing research and evaluation.
