JUST ONE MORE
Substance Abuse Prevention | Student Program
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.
PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES
Gain a new perspective on alcohol and drug addiction and how it might impact themselves and those they call brother or sister.
Identify potential warning signs that someone they love may be struggling with alcohol or drug abuse.
Learn appropriate conversation starters to have with someone they fear is struggling with alcoholism or addiction.
Due to the global pandemic, Archie plans on delivering 100% of his programs virtually for the time being. Virtual programs do not have to be boring, and can be more effective than in-person events.
Archie's virtual programs are delivered with the same objectives and learning outcomes as other events. Students react well to the virtual programming and oftentimes feel more comfortable engaging over this medium.
