Short course (2 hour duration) with a presentation focused around three axes:

  • Drugs are everywhere. No family is safe from it. Each part must know the effects and consequences of psychotropic drugs.
  • The principle drugs under a scientific lens: their appearance, their effects.
  • An important part of this course focuses on cannabis, a drug which ensnares adolescents, a gate way to drugs and which leads to drug addiction.

Quiz

If one has consumed drugs, is s/he tempted to take some more?

  • Yes
  • No

oui

Most drugs are stored in the body fats for years. During an exertion, a walk, sport, fear, surprise, stimulation, a bit of fat is burnt and very small quantities of drugs are released into the blood circulation. This will reactivate the effects of the drugs, making the user feel that they want more.

Is anyone who takes drugs a drug-addict ?

  • Yes
  • No

non

A drug-addict is someone who takes drugs in order to solve problems created by taking drugs. S/he thinks that s/he can stop taking them whenever s/he wants, however, in spite of the harmful consequences caused by consuming drugs, s/he cannot. If the drug-addict experiences withdrawal symptoms he will think only about providing himself with drugs even if it means acting against his morals. The demand is so strong that anything linked with will, effort, love or morals gradually disappears completely. Lies, violence, aggressiveness, moral or physical suffering, self-harm, being afraid to take part in everyday life become the norm. Because of these evil acts, the drug-addict looses his/her self-esteem and goes deeper into loneliness and suicidal urges.
