Drug and alcohol course

Drug and alcohol course

The Drug & Alcohol Traffic Awareness is one of the most important courses that people need to take in order to prevent traffic fatalities. According to the Century Council, an important nonprofit organization against drunk driving, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are more than 33,809 traffic accidents registered in 2009. In addition, the traffic accidents were caused by high Blood Alcohol Content (0.8 or more), something that is strongly illegal in the nation.

Nowadays, taking a drug and alcohol course is compulsory in order to learn what the terrible consequences are and the responsibilities people will have to undertake if they drink alcohol or use drugs before driving a car. These kinds of topics are really useful for teenagers because they create a new environment without drugs and alcohol. The course contains interesting themes including the following:
  • Harmful results of consuming drugs and/or alcohol before driving a car.

  • Main responsibilities of driving a car.

  • Safety driving techniques.
There are important nonprofit organizations such as the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) and the U.S Department of Health and Human Services fighting against drug abuse, providing preventive drug and alcohol courses throughout the nation.

Plenty of programs and courses are available on internet nowadays. This kind of virtual education is really convenient and affordable.
