      An effective health education curriculum has the following characteristics, according to reviews of effective programs and curricula and experts in the field of health education Focuses on clear health goals and related behavioral outcomes. This guide was created for school administrators, parents, teachers, and community groups interested in developing effective alcohol and drug abuse prevention programs for elementary and secondary schools. A comprehensive approach to school-based alcohol and drug prevention is described and various prevention activities which have been selected by the National Highway Traffic Safety.

    Alcohol Education. In recent years, the American public has turned its attention to the opioid crisis and the powerful dangers of addiction. But opioids aren’t the only form of substance abuse rising in America. A recent study shows both men and women are now drinking more than in years past, and this may be turning into misuse or dependency. In school-aged children, alcohol and other drug education programs are usually focussed on developing resilience and good decision-making skills. Some strategies also target parents to role model responsible drinking behaviours, and guide parents on how to talk to their children about the dangers of alcohol and drugs.

    Humanly, in-school education could contribute to better health management, more effective listening (and eventually parenting), and helping students achieve goals, such as 30 days sober, etc. Culturally, in-school education creates a consensus that addiction is dangerous and to avoid drug and alcohol .
