Substance Abuse Prevention
The Ultimate Solution for Students
Substance Abuse Prevention Participants build the critical thinking skills necessary to assess risk and the consequences of using drugs and alcohol, take steps to increase their self-control and self-esteem, develop coping skills for relieving stress and anxiety and build positive, healthy attitudes despite the negative and unhealthy influences they may face. Through the activities in this module, participants come to see the value in becoming “powers of example”, or role models, to fulfill their own dreams and make a difference in their community.
Environmental Influences: Analyze social and media influences on attitudes toward drug and alcohol use
Risk Assessment: Understand the connection between drug use, violence and other risky behaviors
Consequences: Understand the physical, emotional and psychological effects of drugs and alcohol
Support and Care: learn the physiology of addiction, path toward recovery, and how to lead by example
Responsible Decision-Making: Assess decisions based on values versus peer pressure.
