Remain in control of your decisions by avoiding substance addiction.
Self control is compromised when one is under the influence of drugs, alcohol or other substances. As a result, an individualâ€™s ability to make decisions is impaired. Itâ€™s important to understand that substance abuse affects an entire person â€“ brain, body, and emotions. When a person chooses to remain in control by avoiding use of substances, they are protecting themselves, and also protecting their relationships with the people in their lives.
Students will add to their understanding of how participation in substance abuse and other addictive behaviors can affect their own lives and the lives of their friends and families.
