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.
