Drug Abuse & Addiction

In this 1- or 2-hour presentation, illegal drugs of abuse are discussed. Information on the drugs that have been on the streets for many years, such as marijuana, crack/cocaine, heroin, and LSD along with their effects, and usage rates in elementary and high schools are made available. The new "Designer Drugs" such as Ecstasy, GHB, rohypnol, ketamine, and methamphetamine, along with prescription drugs are also discussed, including the addictive effects.

With a wide variety of drugs, drug categories, and information available, an entire format would take several hours to present. By choosing specific drugs to be discussed, groups can tailor make a presentation to fit their educational needs.

The State College Police Department also has a drug display kit available, which contains all of the above mentioned drugs. The display can be viewed by asking the presenter to include it at the time of the scheduled presentation. The display kit allows persons in the group to view and handle packaged narcotics thereby enhancing their knowledge of these drugs should they come into contact with them while out on the street.
