How to Help Your Students

As an educator, you can influence your students' decisions about drugs.

Here's how:

1. Read and familiarize yourself with 10 Things Your Friends May Not Know About Drugs and the Drug Facts booklet. You may want to buy copies of them to hand out to your students.

2. In class, talk about drugs and find out what your students honestly think about them. Find out what their questions are, and use the data from 10 Things Your Friends May Not Know About Drugs and the Drug Facts booklet to answer them.

3. Explain to students the effects that drugs have on the mind and body, using the data from the two booklets.

4. Discuss real examples and situations. Ask your students compare the information in the booklets to their own or their friends experiences.

5. At all times, educate your students with reality, use good communication and show affinity for them.

6. If you would like further advice, assistance or materials, contact Narconon and we will help you with what you need.
