Stay On Track Program (6th Grade)

Length: 1 hour a day / 1 day a week / 12 weeks

The Stay On Track Program offers an innovative, fun, and comprehensive approach to substance abuse prevention. The research-based curriculum is designed for middle school students. Special emphasis is given to tobacco, club drugs, hallucinogens, alcohol, prescription drugs, marijuana, and inhalants. However, Stay On Track is more than a substance abuse program, providing lessons on health, decision-making, goal-setting, communication skills, interpersonal relations, and media influences.
