We're Not Buying It
Prevention educators from NCADD will present this four-session series, to all 7th grade students in Hammarskjold Middle School. The goal of the program is to prevent or delay the first use of alcohol and tobacco. Also, due to the fact that alcohol and tobacco are legal for adults, young people are bombarded by conflicting messages regarding their use. The program provides research-based information without resorting to scare tactics, so that youth can make well-informed decisions about alcohol and tobacco use. This program is an important step in turning around the current trend of high alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among youth.
