Get It Straight! is an informative, interactive 10-day programme designed to challenge the idea that drugs are harmless and teach the harmful health and societal effects of drug abuse. Facilitators of the programme can help younger teens make smart choices and avoid the consequences of drug abuse. The programme provides information on cough medicine, over-the-counter drugs, nonmedical use of prescription drugs, inhalants, marijuana, K2/spice, alcohol and tobacco, consequences of drug use, reasons why teens use drugs, peers, media and other influences, making good personal decisions, and drug prevention resources.
There are two publications to be used during this programme:
- Get It Straight: The Facts About Drugs Student Guide
- Get It Straight: The Facts About Drugs Facilitator Guide
