Science Based Drug Education (SBDE) provides substance use prevention specialists, substance use treatment personnel, School Resource Officers, School Resource Deputies, Community Trainers, and National Guard Drug Demand Reduction personnel with an anti-drug use curriculum based on scientific research. SBDE is a research-based presentation on various drugs and their effect on the human body and behavior. It also documents some of the social issues that the drugs create and involve. SBDE helps to alert communities to warning signs and drug trends.
Anti-drug use education is critical for organizations, schools, and communities to be proactive against illicit drugs. SBDE is ideal for military and law enforcement personnel who are building both internal drug prevention training as well as interacting with external organizations and communities. This class is also ideal for professionals of any type of organization dealing with youth between 10-25 years of age. The SBDE curriculum provides attendees with tools to build their own presentation to fit their presentation style.
In order to graduate, students will be required to give a five minute presentation over one of the course topics.
