If young people are well-educated on the factual harm that substance abuse causes, they can make better decisions. But it can be hard to find a drug education curriculum that refrains from being preachy or judgmental. And experience has shown that many drug educators fail to connect with their audiences and make their presentations truly interactive. So the students in your schools, subjected to drug educators who lecture or talk down to them, don't really have the opportunity to learn judgment. It's just one more adult talking on and on, that they hope to tune out.
The Narconon program takes a different approach. Narconon drug educators around the world are trained in an innovative new curriculum that engages your students, keeps them entertained and learning real information at the same time.
What's more, this is an evidence-based drug education curriculum that can be delivered in person or via DVD with our educators kit. In real-life tests, students who received the full Narconon drug education curriculum decided against drug use in greater numbers, as reflected in lower substance abuse statistics six months after attending these classes. Comparable students who did not receive this curriculum had increased substance abuse statistics in that same time period. (Then they also attended these classes.) You can read the peer-reviewed study here.
It has been found that students need to receive a well-rounded drug education and awareness program in order to develop their own judgment and make the decision to stay away from substance abuse.
Students need to understand:
- How drugs and alcohol affect the mind and the body
- The long-range effects of substance abuse
- How does drug abuse become addiction
- What happens when one become addicted
- How emotions affect a person's desire to use drugs
- How drugs and alcohol affect a person's emotional condition
- Specifics on the harm done by certain drugs they are likely to be offered, such as LSD, marijuana, Ecstasy, tobacco, methamphetamine and alcohol
- The role peer pressure plays in starting to use drugs
- How to say no to drug use
- Elements of success in life that tend to prevent substance abuse
More than forty years of experience and development have gone into this Narconon curriculum. More than 13 million young people in dozens of countries around the world have received classes from this curriculum either in person or through our video program. The Narconon Educator's kit provides a series of live presentations on video, along with lesson plans and teachers guide for use in the classroom.
Our goal is to help young people grow up entirely drug-free. Our experience has shown that it can be done. The acceptable standard is not "youth using drugs safely." It's drug-free youth who set an example among their peers.
