School Prevention

The prevention resources within this section are based on school needs and awareness for all educators, School Resource Officers, and faculty. Anti-drug use policies, success in academics and involvement in extracurricular activities, and attending a school with an effective drug education program and a no-tolerance policy for alcohol and drugs are just a few protective factors that can reduce the risk of substance use and abuse within your school. 

School Risk Factors

  • Academic failure

  • Drug availability
  • Attending a school without strict rules that address tobacco, alcohol or drugs and consistent enforcement for breaking those rules
  • Inappropriate classroom behavior, such as aggression and impulsivity
  • Lack of commitment to school 
  • School stress, bullying, and peer pressure
