from 35.00

This course satisfies the Safety, Support & Wellness requirement for the School Culture Advocate Certification. Learn more at www.safeschoolsacademy.org/sca.

Course description: With the exception of marijuana, use of illicit drugs has declined consistently over the last twenty years for middle and high school students, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. But how can we as educators continue to ensure that number continues to decline? How can we help our students who are using drugs stop using? How do these drugs effect students’ ability to perform at school? This course will help answer these questions and more by examining the current drug use statistics among youth as well as delving deeper into how specific substances effect adolescent brains. The course will also explore how current and past institutional intervention programs have succeeded and how some need to be improved upon.
