Teaching in Schools

SafeRx Lake County has partnered with Behavioral Health to implement youth drug prevention programs directly in school classrooms.

 

Project ALERT: Middle School

 

Project ALERT is a free classroom-based substance abuse prevention program for 7th and 8th graders that’s
proven to reduce the experimental and continued use of drugs. Through a series of comprehensive lessons, Project ALERT motivates students against drug use, cultivates new non-use attitudes and beliefs, and equips teens with the skills and strategies they’ll use to resist drugs.

 

 

The Truth About Drugs

 

The Truth About Drugs was created by The Foundation for a Drug-Free World, a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free. The free program is offered as an aid to educators who teach 11-year-olds and above in a classroom, group-instruction, or community-learning setting.
