Too Good for Drugs Too Good for Drugs (TGFD) is a comprehensive alcohol, tobacco, and other drug-prevention program that promotes positive norms for healthy, drug-free living in kindergarten through fifth grades. TGFD is an in-depth school-based drug prevention/education program designed to teach students that they are "too good" for drugs and equip them with knowledge, protective factors, and developmental assets. Students are provided with proactive support, positive role models, clear boundaries, and high expectations that research has shown to be building blocks for healthy development. Narcotics Overdose Prevention and Intervention (NOPE)NOPE is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that was formed in Palm Beach County, Florida in 2004 to combat the illegal use of prescription drugs and narcotics as well as other abuse substances. NOPE does prevention through education. Their research-based, high-impact multimedia presentations are delivered to middle and high school students during a 50 minute block assembly. The students are educated about the harmful effects of alcohol and drug abuse and they are encouraged to call 911 to save a life. NOPE partners with local law enforcement agencies and parents who have lost a loved one to prescriptive drugs in delivering these presentations. The Prescription Medication Abuse Guide and Toolkit was developed by the Substance Abuse Task Force of Flagler and Volusia County. The guide provides a wealth of information to assist an understanding the epidemic that is aggressively impacting both adults and children in Florida.
