  1. You can educate all you want. A person chooses to do drugs. So instead of watching them die they have the resources to save them and hopefully lead them to recovery. Even with that they can still choose to go back to using. There is no prevention for choices people make. People choose to do stupid things every day. How about raising them to make the right choices then pray that they do. It starts in the home not the school.
