Available in both classroom and small group assembly formats, this highly interactive, 45 to 60 minute presentation provides current, research-based information on various aspects of drug abuse and addiction. During the presentation, participants learn about neurobiology—the brain’s parts, how they work, and how they communicate with the rest of the body—and how drugs of abuse affect it. By the end of the program, participants have a better understanding of the science behind drugs, and understand that they cause side effects ranging from mild symptoms to addiction.
Material is suitable for fifth through twelfth grades and emphasizes that adolescent brains are more susceptible to negative effects.
