Safety First Real Drug Education

The City of Beaumont has put together resources and sessions to help educate you and your kids on the topic of Drug Education. A full course work of material has been developed as well as educational resources to help you understand the cause and effect of different drug categories and how you can properly address the topic.

The Safety First: Real Drug Education for Teens curriculum was developed by the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) to provide teens with honest and scientifically accurate information, and empower them to reduce drug-related harms. The curriculum aligns with the National Health Education Standards (NHES) and Common Core Learning Standards. Each lesson is 45-50 minutes long and includes teacher modifications, student worksheets and extension assignments for further learning. To assist educators in assessing student knowledge, each lesson includes a grading rubric. 

This curriculum will help students:

  • Use critical thinking skills to access and evaluate information about alcohol and other drugs.
  • Learn decision-making and goal-setting skills that help them make healthy choices related to substance use.
  • Develop personal and social strategies to manage the risks, benefits and harms of alcohol and other drug use.
  • Understand the impact of drug policies on personal and community health.
  • Learn how to advocate for restorative drug policies.
