Drug Use Prevention at the Middle School Level

The middle school years are one of the most formative times in a student's life. Students go through a variety of changes both physically and mentally. Along with this comes the pressure to fit in with peers and form strong friendships. Part of fitting in may be engaging in harmful activities such as drug use. With all of this in mind, the importance of having a successful anti-drug use program implemented in schools is evident. The program teaches students the dangers of drug use, how to recognize drug use in their family members and peers, who to turn to for help, and how to successfully learn and practice fending off pressure to use drugs.
