Operation Prevention Virtual Field Trip
Opioids: Real People. Real Stories. Real Science.

Thursday, October 25 @ 1PM ET
Your students may dream of being a pro-athlete, a scientist, or of just making good grades. No one dreams of becoming addicted to drugs, but all across America, students’ dreams are being derailed by opioids.
No matter how it begins, recovery from addiction is a struggle. Join the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Discovery Education for a powerful Virtual Field Trip for middle and high school students to meet real people affected by opioids and hear their stories of loss, triumph, and learning.
Students will meet:
  • Two retired NFL players who understand the pressure to play through pain and now focus their efforts on giving alternative pain management options to young athletes. 
  • A musician who played at Carnegie Hall before becoming addicted and now supports musicians who are in recovery.
  • Three generations affected by opioid addiction who define the far-reaching impact of this crisis.  

Don’t miss out on this powerful event for middle and high school students. Give them the information they need about how addiction can start in this impactful conversation with real people whose lives have been interrupted by opioids.
