Click to zoom in

Research reveals a link between substance use (and abuse) and gun violence. A U.S. Department of Justice survey reports that more than half (52.4%) of state and federal prison inmates doing time for murder committed with guns reported they were under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs when they committed the crime.

The 158-page Substance Abuse and Guns Instructor’s Manual provides interactive life skills activities to teach your students about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, tobacco use, gun facts and gun control, guns and violence and much more.

There are teaching guidelines for all substance abuse and guns lessons and activities, 75 pages of learner’s worksheets, 3 review activities, 3 inspirational biographies, a vocabulary page, 4 section quizzes, an assessment page, answer keys, 4 substance abuse and guns short life skills stories, and 5 motivational posters—all designed to keep your learners and particularly at risk youth engaged and interested in the correlation of substance abuse and guns.

By purchasing the downloadable version of this workbook the buyer agrees to make and use only ONE (1) copy of this copyrighted e-book.

Considering purchasing workbooks alone? Obviously workbooks are less expensive than ARISE instructor manuals. The instructor manual guides the person leading the life skills groups and includes all the workbook pages. Workbooks do not have activity instructions. They are designed specifically for use by learners in conjunction with the ARISE Group facilitator’s manual. Generally speaking the workbook is not useable by itself.


Motivational Posters
Every poster is a mini-life lesson. See them once remember them forever. Perfect for stimulating group and classroom activities.
Positivity Cards
Irresistible, emotionally rich images. Engages those who hate to read. Re-boot lives that have turned off learning anything worthwhile.
