Helping teens to find ways they will feel good about themselves, to be successful and proud of their achievements gives them the self-esteem they need to resist peer pressure. Other ways of helping kids stay clean of drugs is to take up a hobby. Study and work at something they are interested in, whether its art, sports, music, reading, exercising, or helping a friend or family member. This is a great way to stay focused and stay away from drugs. Our drug prevention assemblies will teach your students to stay drug free, stay in school and work hard to accomplish their goals.

Our school performers adjust the content of our drug awareness assemblies to make it age appropriate. The older the students, the more detail we go into about the different types of drugs.

High Action Bikes Tom Rokosz takes it heart when speaking with kids about the dangerous drugs we have in society. Toms aunt Paula died at the young age of 14 years old. Tom gives a heart breaking story that your students will remember. When using illegal drugs everyone is effected in your family. We do inform the older students on making them aware of types of drugs and the effects it has on the body.

Types of Drugs

Prescription Drugs
Opioids is the largest class in terms of common prescription drug abuse. Prescription opioids are often powerful pain relievers, such as Vicodin and Oxycontin. Demerol is also becoming a popular prescription drug to abuse. Prescription Drugs now outnumber new users of every illicit drug, except Marijuana. 1 in 3 teens reports having a close friend who abuses prescription pain relievers to get high. SAMHSA's National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows that teen abuse of legal drugs is on the rise. Everyday 2,500 teenagers use a prescription drug to get high for the first time. Usually the prescription drug is found at home or at a friends home.

Methamphetamine

Street Terms: Crystal Meth, Meth, Ice
Meth can kill you by causing overheating, convulsions, and coma.
Meth can damage blood vessels in the brain leading to strokes.


Marijuana
Street Terms: Pot, Weed, Joint
Smoking marijuana affects alertness, concentration, perception, coordination and reaction time, many skills required for safe driving and other tasks. These effects can last several hours after smoking.
Marijuana can be addicting. More teens are in treatment with primary diagnosis of marijuana dependence than all other illicit drugs combined.
Marijuana also has some of the same cancer-causing substances as tobacco. One joint can deliver four times as much cancer-causing tar as one cigarette.


Heroin
Heroin clouds mental function and slows cardiac function.
Breathing is slowed, possibly to the point of death.


Cocaine and Crack
Cocaine can kill you the first time you use it. Cocaine and Crack are highly addictive.
Regular cocaine and crack users can become very paranoid. Cocaine use can cause damage to your nose. Regular snorting cocaine, for example, can lead to loss of sense of smell, nosebleeds, problems with swallowing, hoarseness, and chronically runny nose.

Celebrate Red Ribbon Week with a High Action Bikes Drug Prevention Assembly on October 22-30, 2011
Red Ribbon Week is the most far-reaching and well-known drug prevention event in America.
Red Ribbon Week focuses on educating students about healthy choices and responsible choices, especially the choice to avoid drugs. The need for drug prevention efforts never diminishes. Each year there are millions of new students just starting their journey through school who have not yet heard the drug free messages expressed during Red Ribbon Week.



Drug Free Assembly

Red Ribbon Week History
The National Family Partnership (NFP) began Red Ribbon Week in 1988 to commemorate the life and death of Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, an agent of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, who died in the fight against drugs. NFP, an organization devoted to helping families and communities live healthy, drug-free lives, asked youth and adults to wear and display red ribbons during the last week of October to demonstrate their commitment to a drug free lifestyle and to remember Agent Camarena. The U.S. Congress quickly rallied to this cause, with Nancy Reagan as the first honorary chairperson.

Since 1988, communities throughout the country have embraced Red Ribbon Week and have sponsored many different activities that promote healthy, drug-free lifestyles, John Lasne, a U.S. postal employee, was inspired by the 1992 Red Ribbon Celebration poster and wrote a story titled, “The Red Ribbon” for a storytelling event in Greenville, South Carolina. “The Red Ribbon” describes a village on the brink of destruction due to a sadness that touches all people and things. The king desperately tries to rid the kingdom of this curse. After many failures, a young weaver lifts the pall of gloom by using a red ribbon to unite the community and create positive change.

When schools and organizations plan events and activities to celebrate Red Ribbon Week, they pay tribute to a brave DEA agent by bringing people together to give our youth a priceless gift, a drug-free community.
