ALCOHOL AND

DRUG PREVENTION 

Discussing alcohol & other drug prevention with students has never been easy. Most want to appear “too cool” to engage in what is often a tough conversation. In each of these programs, Archie shares openly about his battle with drug addiction, allowing students to build trust through vulnerability. The transparency he uses provides students the opportunity to shed light on silenced issues that ultimately equip them to move towards a more transparent future.

BENZOS, BLOW & BOURBON:
AN HONEST CONVERSATION

In almost every college coming-of-age movie, beer pong, parties, and hangovers are common. For many, the big screen reflects our lived reality. A majority of students use alcohol and perhaps experiment with other drugs. It’s normal, right? While most will not find themselves in a hospital ICU with a drug overdose, most students know someone who battles alcoholism or addiction. These battles are often fought alone, with many friends having difficulty confronting the dark nature of the disease.

In this powerful program, Archie uses his own personal journey to show how easily partying turns problematic. Students learn how to spot warning signs in their peers. They equip themselves to have vulnerable conversations with those struggling with recovery.

JUST ONE MORE

In life, we tend to think that small, seemingly insignificant choices have no real impact on our lives. Archie learned firsthand how this is not true. He shares with attendees how a series of choices he made to cover up unbelievable pain led to not only his first drug but years of “just one more.”

 

While most attendees will not find themselves in a hospital ICU as a result of a drug overdose, most of us know someone who battles alcoholism or addiction. Understanding the “why” behind her/his usage and self-destructive behaviors reminds us to be kind to the person who is battling a very controlling disease.

 

In this powerful program, Archie uses his personal journey to show how easily life can go off track. Participants also learn how to spot potential warning signs in those they are close to, and how to communicate with someone headed in the wrong direction with alcohol and/or drugs.
