Alcohol and Other Drugs

AODA Learning Modules

Over the years the Wisconsin Safe & Healthy Schools Center has noticed a decline in the number of schools providing professional development for staff on alcohol and other drug abuse and prevention.  Yet we know that use among students has not gone away, nor has the effect on student behavior and academic performance.  For this reason the WISH Center has developed videos on AODA warning signs and family dynamics of substance abuse.  We encourage you to use them for school in-services or initial educator learning.  Special thanks to Cornerstone Productions and the Supporting Player Troupe from New Holstein for contributing to this project.

View the videos online or in a group.  Talk with administrators and colleagues about what happens next and how to intervene with students.  Find and share local resources that are available to help.
