★ Have you ever arrived in a room in your house with no memory of what you came to get?


★ After your brain told you to get something, it knows it’s routine for you in your own house, so your mind starts thinking of other things…


★ This is the essence of habits - once you start on a familiar series of actions, you stop thinking about them, and you’re able to complete them without conscious thought or attention. The good side is that habits free up our minds from dull or repetitive tasks. The bad side is that bad habits can be difficult to stop once they’re started. THIS IS A CRITICAL MESSAGE FOR TEENS!

Day 2 - 3:


1. Students learn that the brain receives input from dopamine (Neurons begin to associate rewards with a particular thought, or action. Our brain says “Yes” to pleasure, and “No” to pain. People often turn to food, drugs, or alcohol to feel good or to not feel bad (and can then become "trapped" in addiction).


2. Students watch a video clip on how the brain handles the drug "Methamphetamine"


3. Students go through a "Neurotransmitter Handout"


4. Students take an anonymous “Drug Addiction Survey” to determine if they (or someone they know) has a drug addiction. Treatment resources are included.
