In Idaho, surveys indicate some youth binge drink in the sixth grade, and a few may even start earlier. Parent’s disapproval of youthful alcohol use is the key reason children choose not to drink. Get informed and involved. Don’t just talk to your kids; let your actions show them you really care. Keep up to date with local and state-wide organizations, campaigns, and events.
AN IN DEPTH LOOK INTO ALCOHOL & DRUG USE AND ABUSE
Each day communities are facing drug and alcohol related problems at an alarming rate, whether your focus is youth or adult alcohol/drug abuse. Various drugs are being ingested, snorted, huffed, concealed, sold and smoked every day. Also, new alcoholic beverages, mixers and concealment methods are coming onto the market. Most drug abusers frequently show signs and /or symptoms through their eyes, demeanor, clothing, words, logos and slang terms. Due to the lack of knowledge of the different alcoholic drinks more youth are finding ways to access the different alcoholic beverages, and in some cases consume them right in front of you. Can you identify over the counter items, prescription drugs, inhalants, OTC medicines, synthetic drugs, clothing, energy drinks, alcoholic whipped cream, dilated pupils, drug paraphernalia, and other physical signs and symptoms that are consistent with underage drinking or drug abuse? Well, this is only the beginning. This two day class will provide over 200 visual aids and a mock room identification exercise to help you identify your knowledge level.
