Substance Use Prevention and Education for Schools and Communities

Education on the risks, causes, signs and prevention of substance abuse for students, parents, teachers, and staff.

Our Approach


Using first hand personal experience to illustrate important topics in prevention we create a memorable educational experience to help students make healthy choices.


We cover the progression of Addiction by walking students through our experience with substances from an early age to the consequences of late stage addiction. We cover topics related to risk factors including family history, brain development, physiological and psychological changes, the impact on relationships and the overall progression of addiction. Throughout our story we also illustrate opportunities for prevention and intervention.


Students learn from the experiences of someone who became addicted to substances. We walk them through the decisions we made and how they impacted our lives. We also discuss how addiction impacts relationships, families, communities, and our culture on a large scale. We also discuss how someone struggling with addiction can find help.
