Unit 3: Drug Prevention

In this unit the students will learn how drugs affect every dimension of their health.  They will analyze the many reasons why they would want to avoid them and successfully lead a drug free life.  They will develop skills that will help them analyze the messages and pressures from media, peers, and society.  Statistics show that the majority does not use drugs and truly appreciates their body and health.  Students will explore this idea as well as what they are passionate about to gain purpose in life, instead of an artificial high that creates a false sense of happiness. 

"Today's students can put dope in their veins or hope in their brains.  If they can conceive it and believe it, they can achieve it.  They must know it is not their aptitude but their attitude that will determine their altitude"


Unit Objectives:
At the end of the unit, the students will be able to:

1. Explain each drug category, the drugs that belong in each group, and the dangerous consequences they have on the physical, mental/emotional, social, and spiritual health of an individual using.
2. Identify and analyze messages and pressures from the media, peers, and society that promote drug use.
3. Explain what refusal skills are and how they can be applied in their life to avoid drug use.
4. Describe the skills needed to successfully lead a drug free life and advocate that message to peers.
5. Explain how addiction not only affects the health of the individual using, but also their loved ones. 
6. Describe how to help someone that wants to use drugs, is using, or has an addiction.
