PFS: Partnership For Success
Students in Brockton receive health education including topics drugs. According to the Drug Free Communities (DFC) survey, Brockton students have a high perception of harm associated with prescription drugs.
The younger an individual engages in substance use, the more risk they are to later develop a substance use disorder. Each year that you delay first time use, you decrease your chances of developing a substance use disorder by 10%.
The goal of this campaign is to encourage youth to become leaders amongst their peers, decrease their misperception of use and get educated on the dangers of non-medical use of prescription drugs by gaining their attention through social media.
