Teacher with Students

Teachers are a second line of defense in preventing substance use and abuse in children and teens. Teachers and parents can work together to make sure strong and consistent messages are taught concerning drug abuse. Educators are also able to identify children who may be at risk and work with their parents to prevent children and teens from going down an unhealthy path. 

SAMSHA's "Talk. They Hear You" Campaign has several useful resources for schools and educators. Click the link below to learn more. 

School and Educator Resources

School campaigns, events, and activities aimed at the education of harmful substances have proven to be affective at lowering the rates of teens using marijuana and other drugs. Encourage your school, faculty, and staff to participate in activities or become members of your local drug prevention coalition. 

If you are an educator looking for resources or ways you can learn more about substance use prevention, consider becoming a member of a local drug prevention coalition. Overton County Anti-Drug Coalition would love to have you become a member!
