• Massachusetts is one of many states across the country facing a growing epidemic of opioid addiction. Schools play an important role in educating youth about the dangers of substance abuse and in preventing substance use among students.  Our goal is to increase students’ understanding of the legal, social, and health consequences of alcohol and substance use to prevent use and abuse among students, provide parents and guardians with educational opportunities regarding the warning signs of substance use/abuse and referral resources, and teach student’s self-management, social, negotiation, and refusal skills that will empower them to make healthy decisions and avoid alcohol and substance use.
