Substance Abuse Program Program Overview

Learning how different substances affect their bodies, students are taught to practice healthy habits and only take medicines that have been prescribed to them and/or given to them by their parents.

Included in the Substance Abuse Prevention Program are many of the “best practices” of teaching, such as having students work in small groups, engaging in kinesthetic activities, using higher-order thinking skills, and defending their understanding. Learning for Life also includes a Family/Home Activity for each lesson that enables students to apply what they have learned in the classroom while including parents / guardians in the substance abuse prevention of their child.
