EFFECTIVE DRUG EDUCATION TOOLS FOR ALL TEACHERS AND EDUCATORS
Thank you for providing our teachers with the program materials "The Truth About Drugs Education"Package. Our teachers will preview the materials and make sure they use or pass the information onto health teachers at their schools. For those who were not at the conference, here is the material that was presented at our vendor booth and in the conference presentation. To receive this materials see the information below.The Truth About Drugs Education Package contains practical tools to educate young people about substance abuse.
No one questions the severity of the drug problem and its devastating impact on youth. Academic results suffer and, even worse, drugs undermine health and destroy young lives.
The best solution is to reach young people with effective, fact-based drug education—before they start experimenting with drugs. Tweens, teens and young adults who know the facts about drugs are much less likely to start using them.
The core of the Foundation’s education program consists of the 1 hour and 42 minute documentary, The Truth About Drugs: Real People—Real Stories.
The documentary is supplemented by thirteen drug information booklets and award-winning public service announcements. More than 55 million educational handouts have been distributed in over 180 countries and in 20 languages.
This Truth About Drugs Education Package is the ideal supplemental aid. It fills the growing demand for practical tools to help the teacher, instructor or drug prevention specialist communicate the truth about drugs swiftly and effectively. It provides lesson plans, assignments and classroom activities that capture and retain young people's attention—and elicit their participation. Students willingly read, view and, most importantly, use the information to make the right choices about drugs.

Deer Damage Can Be Costly!
State Farm® tips to protect yourself on the road.
In many U.S. states, drivers are all too familiar with deer crossing signs, but do they really know how close the danger may be? State Farm has released its annual deer claim study, which ranks states by the potential drivers had of hitting a large animal, including deer, elk and moose over a given time period. On average, one of every 41 West Virginia drivers will have an insurance claim for damage caused by a collision with a deer in 2016.
