D.A.R.E. UPDATE TRAINING

WHAT:
Current D.A.R.E. Officers attending and completing this D.A.R.E. training will be certified in the Opioid, Prescription & OTC Drug Abuse Prevention curriculum, as well as trained to present our two newly released enhancement lessons addressing “Vaping” and Teen Mental Health/Suicide Prevention
WHERE:
Long Beach Township Municipal Court Complex, Ocean County, NJ
WHEN:
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 / 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

  • Opioid, Prescription& Over-the-Counter Drug Abuse. Today’s youth face substantial risks unprecedented in recent years. In response, D.A.R.E., the most comprehensive drug abuse prevention curricula in the world, has created a comprehensive K-12 Opioid and Over-the-Counter / Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention “enhancement” lesson program.
  • Vaping enhancement lesson: This 45 minute lesson is designed to present the information at two developmentally appropriate levels of complexity: one for Middle School students in 7th or 8th grade; and one for High School students in 9th or 10th grade.
  • More Than Sad Teen Mental Health: 1 in 5 U.S. adolescents aged 13-18 have experienced a serious mental health disorder while suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in young people aged 10-24. More Than Sad is a 45 minute enhancement lesson designed for delivery by D.A.R.E. Officers to High School students, ideally in 9th or 10th grade.

Registration for this update training is required.
