Brief Program Description

Drug use and abuse among our nation’s youth continues to be a major concern. Despite our best efforts, illicit drug markets continue to grow, young people continue to poison their brains and bodies, and new synthetic and designer drugs continue to emerge from the lab to destroy the lives of youth. This presentation will present cutting-edge approaches and research for the education and treatment of youth who are highly resistant to even the notion that drugs are dangerous or that they could possibly have a “drug problem.” Also, this presentation will use well-documented and updated facts about both legal and illicit drugs. We will review the effects that commonly abused legal and illicit drugs have on the brain and body and highlight practical ways to stay aware of new trends in the world of drug use and abuse.
