Secondary Schools
 
  Narconon Drug Education presentations in secondary schools are suitable for ages 13 years old upwards. The presentations last forty minutes with an additional thirty minutes allowed for open question time at the end. For schools whose timetable only allows for half an hour PSHE, an abbreviated form of the presentation is available.

The presentation has five distinct sections:

Section 1
The opening section deals with the question what is a drug, plus the differences between physical addiction and mental addiction. It demonstrates the effect that stimulants have on the body’s metabolism using easy to understand examples.

Section 2
This section looks at the three stages of a drug’s effect on the body. The gradually developed need for increased quantities of alcohol and drugs is also looked at. Finally, the unpredictability of the body in its reaction to drugs is explained.

Section 3
People think they’re ‘being different’ when they take a drug, in actual fact it’s the opposite. This section looks at the effect of different drugs on people’s personalities and how a drug-taker starts to lose much of his individual character.

Section 4
In section five the mental effects of drug and alcohol use are demonstrated. Blank periods occur during substance abuse which effect the mind’s ability to think in sequence and also effect its memory and analytical powers.

Section 5
Why do people take drugs in the first place? This question is answered in this section. The factor of diminished responsibility is also looked at as well as the dwindling spiral of drug taking. Finally the presentation ends on a positive note and looks at the real ‘highs’ to be attained when one achieves one’s goals in life.


COMPANY PRESENTATIONS

Today in the British workplace more and more absenteeism is attributable to employees' substance abuse outside of work hours. Currently there are no accurate statistics for drug-related accidents in the workplace but many fear that this percentage, too, is now extremely high. Given these current trends, more and more companies are seeking advice and enlightenment in this area.

Narconon drug education services offers two types of presentation for companies. The first is the normal format that we deliver and is geared towards parents within the company. These presentations are normally delivered at lunch hour times and cover all of the basic physiological and mental effects of drugs and alcohol and how to talk successfully to a son or daughter who you suspect is using drugs.

The second type of company presentation is geared towards human resources/personnel staff and deals with spotting the tell-tale signs of drugs in the work place, how drugs can impair work performance and be a liability, and also offers solutions. These presentations last four hours, including question and answer sessions, and are normally scheduled around the convenient time slots for the manager and his or her staff.
