Introduce Opioid Education in Classrooms

Completion time


Activity Description

Teaching school children about the opioid epidemic, whether in a school or as a parent, doesn’t have to be a daunting task. In fact, the National Institution on Drug Abuse has multiple resources put together for teachers and parents. On their website, find more than 90 free classroom lessons, multimedia activities, and more on the effects of drugs and drug use on the brain, body, and life of children and teens.

How can I do that?


Parents can visit the NIDA website and use the resources to help educate their children in the home


Teachers can visit NIDA's website to locate and use their lesson plans in the classroom, either as a lesson plan as part of a health class or as a course about addiction.

Parent Teacher Officers:

PTO members or school administrators can petition to include addiction and opioid education as part of health curriculum for students of all ages.
