Science Behind Drugs:
Curricular Resources

Curricular Resources include:

RCC’s Science Behind Drugs (SBD) Curricular Resources have been developed to assist teachers in their classrooms. Combining information on addiction and neurological development with social-emotional skill building exercises, lessons and activities are based on the most current research and successful prevention practices.

Implementation of the segments is simple and customizable. RCC can work with your educators in targeting existing curricular areas in which the prevention resources would serve as enhancements, allowing significant flexibility for content delivery throughout the school curriculum.

All program materials are housed in a password-protected online learning management system (LMS) with varied access based upon the individual school needs.
