Drug Awareness/Violence Education Workshops
Teenagers are often negatively influenced by music and television that depict drug abuse. Unfortunately, many parents and teens are uninformed about drug slang names that mask messages about drug use and trafficking, and how it could be glorified in music. We developed this workshop to effectively communicate with teens about drug messages used in music and how it can negatively affect their choices. Speaking their language is key to dispel the myths about drug abuse and addiction.
Publications we use: ” Heads Up: Real News About Drugs And Your Body” is a drug education series from scholastic and the scientists of The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). They joined forces to publish informative and engaging publications to educate teenagers about the effects of drugs on the brain and body. Students will receive free publications provided by NIDA and complete activities that will test their knowledge of drug abuse. Forensic chemistry, a career in forensic science will also be included to engage students in science. AWIFS will educate the teen community in Philadelphia about the dangers of drugs and drug abuse through drug prevention publications provided by The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), exploration of lyrics in various genres of music that promote and depict drugs and drug abuse and the role that a forensic chemist plays in identifying and confirming controlled substances.
- NEWS FLASH: AWIFS, The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and Southwest Nu-Stop Inc. hosted the first “National Drug Facts Week: Shatter The Myths” in Philadelphia on Saturday November 13, 2010 to bring scientists, drug prevention/treatment, youth organizations and the teen community together to discuss the facts about drugs and drug abuse.
