You chose: Do your students and parents need to hear from top scientists or those who have “been there?” We offer you both.

Neuroscientists and psychologists demystify neurobiological effects, sociological impacts, and practical solutions. Clever explanations simplify complicated processes. Follow pathways from tongue to brain with current research findings, MRI images, and real-life case studies.

If substances alter brain chemistry, do effects continue the day after use? Dissect substances’ damaging contributions to athletics, academics, and relationships. Determine how chemical compounds combine to produce detrimental environments for growth and development in the everyday world.

The stories leave your community wide-eyed. Gain new perspective on substance struggles, empowering positive choices and changes in expectations.
