Narcotic Task Force Presentation Request
Please be advised that your organization is required to supply the following for a presentation:
Heroin and Opiate Abuse for Students (Pathway to Addiction)
Narcotic Task Force
(Approximately 1 hour)
Thank you for visiting the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force website in reference to our Heroin and Opiate Education Initiative. Requests for this presentation should be limited to 7th and 9th grade students. Scheduling for this presentation will be on Fridays throughout the school year at either 10am or 1pm. The presentation educates students on the dangers of experimentation with prescription medication, specifically Opiates, and how it corresponds directly with the increase in Heroin use by young people. Presenters will provide first-hand accounts and examples of Heroin-related arrests, overdoses, and deaths throughout Bergen County. Students will leave with a practical, real-world education on the chilling effects Heroin can have on their lives and the importance of good decision-making.
