Substance abuse is a worldwide problem and is present in every community. The problem has existed for years and is becoming more prevalent. Substance abuse affects all communities and all members of the community.
ACT on Drugs, Inc., a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization with a mission to educate parent’s, teens, and professionals about addictive and psychoactive substances, both legal and illegal, which are available in their community. The staff consists of qualified educators/trainers with extensive experience in substance abuse education and knowledge of the medical consequences of substance abuse.
Drug awareness and drug education is one of the keys to solving the problem. ACT on Drugs provides vital information to parent’s, teens, teachers and administrators, health care providers, social workers and case workers, law enforcement personnel, judicial officials and other professionals about the common and uncommon drugs and other abused-substances.
The ACT on Drugs staff uses PowerPoint enhanced lectures and seminars to teach a variety of audiences about substance abuse. The training sessions may be 1-4 hours in length. Each presentation is tailored to the specific audience and each presentation includes a correlated handout that is distributed to the audience. The handouts are regularly updated to provide the most recent information.
ACT on Drugs is supported by donations from philanthropic organizations and from private individuals. Private donors have access to educational materials, including instructional DVDs, developed by ACT on Drugs.
