Street Drugs and Home Highs: Teens and the New Drug Epidemic

About the Course

Generation Z is bombarded with a myriad of youth cultural influences that promote drug use as a viable life style with no real consequences. Pro-Drug influences use music, film, video games, social media, and pop culture icons send youth a consistent message that street drugs and home highs are the “cool” thing to do. In this workshop we will explore the resurgence of heroin use among youth, meth and cocaine , O.T.C’s, pharmaceuticals, synthetic drugs as well as D.I.Y. (do it yourself) highs that involve household items kids use to get high.
