Here is what law enforcement officials have to say about the program:
“The videos were a valuable addition to the drug lessons. The students now understand how drugs can ruin the lives of people from similar backgrounds to theirs. I’ve found that the stories of the individuals highlighted in the videos was more credible than me telling the students about someone whose life was ruined by drug use or how sick one could get after using the drug. After the first class using the videos I asked the students if they preferred a lecture or the videos…they were very excited to hear that they would be watching similar videos for the duration of the drug lectures.” CF, Sheriff’s Deputy/Police Officer, New Jersey
