Narconon® Drug Prevention and Education
There are currently 15 million drug users in the United States and an increasingly large number of those are children. Ours is a nation that largely praises quick fixes and easy relief, which leads to the event of experimentation followed by addiction.
Narconon staff have educated over 2.7 million school children through the Narconon drug education and training programs. Our program has demonstrated effectiveness in keeping kids off drugs.
Narconon centers and groups conduct numerous drug prevention activities around the world on a weekly basis. Training programs in communication and other life skills are conducted with high risk youth. Peer Leader training provides high school students with the skills needed to help counsel their peers and prevent them from using drugs.
Outcome studies show that early drug prevention must give young children the truth, the vital information and tools they need to make their own choice to keep away from drugs. Our track record over the past two decades is impressive with key results being reported.
Evidence Based Education
By continually monitoring trends in youth substance abuse, the Narconon Drug Education program keeps pace with changing community needs. Presentations are real and reflect what kids are actually doing.
The Narconon program surveys every presentation to generate data on changes in perception of risk, program efficacy and for quality control. Schools are required to use strategies that provide evidence of prevention or reduction in drug use. The Narconon program consistently obtains these results.
A recent outcome study of the Narconon drug education program demonstrates its effectiveness in reducing drug use amongst high school students. Click here for the Narconon drug education study or view it online at www.substanceabusepolicy.com
