Preventing Problems, Reducing Risk (PPRR) is a presentation designed for high school / college age young adults to look at prevention in a different way.  In order to prevent problems related to substance use, participants will examine the problems that are associated with substance use and learn how to reduce their risk of developing these problems.

Participants will learn:

  • Alcoholism/Addiction (like Heart Disease, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure) is a lifestyle related health problem
  • Risk for developing alcoholism/addiction is based on our biology plus our choices
  • What are low risk choices vs. high risk choices
  • How tolerance plays a role in risk for developing alcoholism/addiction
  • Effects of alcohol on the brain and body
  • Students will learn how their choice to use ATOD can jeopardize the things they value
  • What is low risk for them
  • How to protect the things that they value

This hands-on presentation includes several group activities, as well as individual activities to help participants realize what ARE the things in their lives that they value – and – are their alcohol and drug choices risking or protecting the things that they value?
