SCHOOL PRESENTATION TOOLKIT
To assist you in preparing for the presentation, a comprehensive toolkit has been developed to aid administrators, teachers and staff in their efforts to educate students on the dangers of substance use, prepare for the presentation content as well as student response. This guide was written based on suggested best practices of schools and reflects a diversity of experiences, viewpoints and knowledge on substance use disorder and the disease of addiction. The toolkit also includes suggested resources for classroom follow-up and suggested policies for handling student disclosure.
