TALK IT OUT: HEROIN ABUSE AND ADDICTIONFrom the 5 volume series TALK IT OUT: TEENS, SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND ADDICTION - COMPLETE SERIES

For Grades 7-12

DVD + Printable Teaching Guide

Released in 2016

This program begins with a discussion about how our instincts drive us to avoid pain or remove pain from our lives. From this perspective, the video explains the difference between healthy and unhealthy approaches to getting rid of pain. Students will learn about prescription opioids and the potential risk of addiction that is identified by two key components, tolerance and withdrawal. The program then targets the short and long term effects of heroin use, and explains how it harms various body systems. Students will come to understand that heroin addiction goes beyond physical dependence, and that once addicted to heroin, a person’s primary goal in life is to find and ingest the drug.
