Today our youth have more access then ever before to information about substance abuse.
Unfortunately, this access tends to be about how to abuse substances.
Schools today have programs that help give adolescents the skills and information that are needed to resist social influences to substances including
alcohol, cigarettes, and other illicit drugs.
The goals of these programs is to increase personal and social competence, confidence and self-efficacy.
To show how to reduce the motivations to use drugs, and not be involved in harmful social environments. You can never have to much information.
Studies have shown that if you keep a constant reminder of the message you are teaching that the students will recall the visual aid, poster or banner.
Images do make an impact! If you can save one student or more from heading towards abusing drugs, wouldn't it be worth it?
