Prevention in Schools

There are two things children should get from their parents: roots and wings.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

Supporting and relieving
At school children and young people frequently go through critical development phases. Addiction prevention at school can help support young people, ease burdens and put them in a position to react skilfully to crisis situations and to avoid addiction-promoting behaviour.

Strengthening life skills and action competence
Addiction prevention has to be as complex as the development of an addiction. It is a question of giving children and young people strength, of sensitising them and putting them in a position to recognise the opportunities and dangers in life. This means that addiction prevention at school does not aim primarily to provide information about legal or illegal drugs or addictive behaviour, but to assist in strengthening and promoting children and young people’s life skills and action competence.

Addiction prevention takes place in daily interaction with one another. An important factor is the involvement of everyone – school students, parents, teachers, head teachers, school doctors and school psychologists
