Title: Project ALERT Core Lesson 9: Review and Practice Resistance Techniques
URL: https://s3.amazonaws.com/project_alert/assets/0/952/pa_core_9%202021.pdf
Description:

Each day, America’s teenagers are bombarded with misleading messages about drugs. Glamorized by media and endorsed by peers, the consequences of drug use and experimentation are dangerously disguised, and often hidden altogether. The reality is that drug use can alter a teen’s life forever. That’s why every student should be given the tools to make a decision against using drugs - and the best place to give them those tools is your classroom.

Title: What Is Alcohol Use Disorder?
URL: https://teens.drugabuse.gov/drug-facts/alcohol
Description:

Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a chronic relapsing brain disorder characterized by an impaired ability to stop or control alcohol use despite adverse social, occupational, or health consequences. AUD ranges from mild to severe. Underage drinking is drinking alcohol before a person turns age 21, which is the minimum legal drinking age in the United States. Underage drinking is a serious problem, as you may have seen from your friends or your own experiences. Alcohol is the most commonly used substance of use among young people in America, and drinking when you’re underage puts your health and safety at risk.

This free resource from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention teaches students the effects of tobacco use on the body. In this lesson, students conduct an experiment that demonstrates what goes into a person’s lungs with each puff of a cigarette. Then, students will view an interactive Web animation that gives a 360-degree view of the organs in the human body and an explanation of how tobacco use affects each organ.
