In a recent study, 21% of adolescents said they were prescribed opioids in the last year despite the fact that up to 40% of people prescribed opioids become addicted. Look Out Opioids Kill! submerges students into a minute to win it experience where they must focus solely on accomplishing one task, paralleling the single-minded focus that many addicts experience, often resulting in the inability to maintain a life balance.; Students will come away with a deeper understanding of how the opioid crisis began and what can be done to stop it. Through movement, props, and animation students experience what happens in the brain when opioids are abused. Youth will gain knowledge about the devastating effects opioids have on individuals and our community.
