Drug and Alcohol Attention Grabbers™ - A Picture is worth a Thousand Words

Over the next few weeks, NIMCO will be sharing some "Attention Grabber™" ideas that you can use in class to help teach about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. The “Attention Grabbers” are designed to assist with teaching and speaking about the adverse effects alcohol and drugs cause to all who are exposed to these addictive drugs. We live in a visual society, making visual aids a needed resource to assist with speaking or teaching thus enabling you to reach your entire audience. The suggestions are designed to assist your alcohol and drug education programs. You may expound upon each scenario as your presentation or speaking time allows. Each “Attention Grabber™” is very cost effective to present with the suggested visual aids to reiterate the information given during your presentation. These "Attention Grabber™" ideas are also great for Red Ribbon Week!

• Poster concerning the hazards of drug or alcohol use
• Black Bows
• Pictures of caskets or funerals
• A tombstone made out of wood or cardboard with RIP inscribed on it
• Any other visual aid about drug or alcohol abuse

Place these items around the room where you will be speaking. Proceed with your speaking session without mentioning the items on display. The ideal is to create a visual setting, which mimics your lecture content. Some research material about the visual items will be helpful to reiterate the subliminal message. Allow the student’s time to review the visual aids and ask questions concerning your displays. This gives you an opportunity to explain the meanings of your visual aids.  

This sets the stage for speaking about the fatal consequences alcohol or drugs may have on your life. As a speaker you may choose this as a visual aid to a prepared speech. This is also a stand alone presentation that will arouse interest in the assembled group. Be prepared to answer questions about the visual aids.
