Drug Use and Abuse

This week, we are following up our work on the body systems with a unit that shows the effects drugs have on those body systems.  We will be discussing both prescription drugs, their use and abuse, and illegal drugs. The unit will include the use of tobacco and alcohol as well. Throughout the unit we will be role playing how to avoid peer pressure when it comes to drug use and abuse.

The main objective of the unit is that students can identify various drugs and their effect on the body. Students also will be able to use techniques taught and practiced to overcome peer pressure when it comes to drug use, including tobacco and alcohol.

As usual, if you have any questions or concerns about the content or delivery of this upcoming unit, please feel free to e-mail me at bidellb@nhalv.org.
