Representing the first in a series of articles we’ll post about current drugs of abuse, this infographic shows the history of one of the most commonly prescribed drugs for ADHD, its clinical use, and its misuse.
SafeLaunch is encouraging local teens with a flare for art to graphically express their feelings about addiction and the science of the brain. Our plane is a pure white canvas shaped like a Cessna. It screams for original art and design. We enjoy seeing the teens paint it and giving them the opportunity to view their world naturally high.
This ‘Fly Above Addiction’ event is co-sponsored by CHANNEL ISLANDS AVIATION and the Ventura County Department of Airports. It’s the second in a series of SIX flights to Southern California airports. The number SIX is significant because most people don’t realize that teens are up to six times more susceptible to addiction than adults. We believe that knowledge is power, and when it’s known that addiction is a preventable brain disease contracted in childhood 90% of the time, we will make proactive choices to prevent it.
At 1pm Friday, August 23, 2013, students from the Camarillo Boys and Girls Club under the direction of club Vice President Roberto Martinez will paint the entire Cessna. Channel Islands Aviation is located at 305 Durley Ave. Camarillo. The public is invited to attend. For more information, contact SafeLaunch at 805-283-7233.
