(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 25, 2015 ) Philadelphia, Pa -- According to Philly, Pennsylvania leads the nation in overdose deaths in young men aged 19 to 25. More than 100 young males are perishing from both illicit and prescribed addictive drugs. Pennsylvania has an alarming death rate of 30.3 deaths per 100,000 young adult males. In response to the new reports, the state is clamoring from upped prevention tactics in schools, which seize upon children at a young age to educate them on the detriments of drug use, which extend beyond the "Just say no" mentality.
Drug Rehab Philadelphia is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center serving the entire state of Pennsylvania; the facility encourages public and private schools to work in conjunction with rehabilitation and research centers to formulate ideal prevention tactics for implementation in prevention education. An associate from the center comments,
"It is not enough to simply employ a half-hearted prevention education model for students in school, who are likely exposed to addictive substances in their neighborhoods, peers, and home environments. We can no longer coddle our youth with D.A.R.E. strategies- we need to craft presentations which expose drug use and addiction for what they are, uncensored. Education professionals must enlist the help of research facilities and local rehabilitation centers who can offer empirical data on their areas, as to which addictive substances are most prominent- and who may offer information as to how people in that specific geographical location are exposed and subsequently develop substance use disorders.
"Without tapping into local know-how and research, we are at a pointed disadvantage to educate our youth by depending on models of prevention education based solely on national studies, which are not outfitted specifically to the needs of Pennsylvania's counties."
