Drugs, Alcohol and Education

Almost all abusers of drugs and alcohol got their start before the age of 21. So stopping addiction before it starts means targeting kids. On the next "Sound of Ideas", we'll talk about what strategies are being used to steer kids clear of addiction. Does DARE in classrooms still work? What about new approaches?
