A Question about Substance Abuse Prevention Programs at Home
Scott sent in this question:
My son is home schooled and has to do the requirement for second class 7c. The drug awareness part. do you have any suggestions on what he can do to meet this requirement? Any help would be great. Thanks Scott
This is Second Class requirement 7c:
- Participate in a school, community, or troop program on the dangers of using drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, and other practices that could be harmful to your health. Discuss your participation in the program with your family, and explain the dangers of substance addictions.
In a Group or at Home?
While these types of substance abuse prevention programs are often completed in a group setting, your troop leadership should also support letting him do it on his own. He could do also do a program with his patrol, troop, home school association, etc. if that is an option.
Here are some other substance abuse prevention resources which you could use in a homeschool setting or within the troop.
Drug Prevention Resources catalogs a number of free resources for education. Topics include alcohol, drugs, vaping, opiods, and more.
D.A.R.E is one of the best known substance abuse education programs. Their curriculum is available on their website. Choose the appropriate level for your child.
Check out the BSA substance abuse program . You can order the materials online. They are often available at your local Scout shop as well.
