We provide students and/or faculty with assemblies, learning sessions, trainings, and/or parent groups to promote awareness and education in the community.

School Services


Assemblies

Students are engaged while learning about the real-life harmful effects of prescription drug abuse. Flindt Andersen, PAIN Founder & President reveals details about his 20 year battle with addiction that hurt his family, friends, and nearly cost him his life. He opens the floor to questions from students, allowing them to voice their concerns about the presence of drug use in their school. PAIN provides follow-up support to victims and families in need of services.

Parent Groups/SART/PTA

Learn about today's most prevalent drug issues in schools. Parents are provided with a look at how young children can become at-risk for drug use and dependence. We share information with parents on topics such as peer pressure, media influence, and how to keep their kids safe along with taking preventative measures in the home and at school.

Faculty Awareness Training

Get your faculty and staff together for the betterment of your school. Learn about the most relevant drug issues affecting students today. In this exciting training session, you will hear about signs and symptoms, substances, and hiding places involved with both street and prescription drug use. Save lives and get educated!

Peer Counseling

PAIN staff speaks to peer counseling groups, teaching them the signs and symptoms of prescription and street drug abuse. In the classroom, a more in-depth study is provided about the causes of substance abuse. Students are instructed on how to help fellow classmates get on the path to recovery. We listen to student opinions on drug use issues at their school, and offer advice on how to combat the issue. We supply basic PAIN materials so Peer Counselors could to provide to struggling or at-risk students.
