Addiction: Substance Abuse Awareness Activities

Lesson Plans by Patrick Healey

The impact of drug addiction is felt by everyone, not just the individual addicted. While America has around five percent of the world’s population, it consumes about eighty percent of the world’s supply of painkillers. This has led to drug overdoses taking over the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Educating our youth is a critical preventative method to curbing the opioid epidemic and substance abuse in general.

  • The nicotine in tobacco is a stimulant and will increase heart rate, cause breathing to be rapid, and lower appetite. It is also highly addictive and makes users smoke whenever the body is low on nicotine.
  • Alcohol is a depressant and will cause the body to lower its heart rate, impair coordination, and lower reaction time. Long term consumption of alcohol will cause severe damage to the liver.
  • Ecstasy/Molly is a hallucinogenic drug that causes visual hallucinations, dehydration, and nausea. Long term usage may lead to brain damage and increase chance for an overdose.
