“keepin’ it REAL” is an innovative, culturally grounded, multicultural curriculum that teaches youth the skills they need to refuse drug offers or engage in other high-risk behaviors.
The skills (Refuse, Explain, Avoid, Leave) prepare children to act decisively, confidently, and comfortably by teaching them how to say no in difficult situations. Students also learn how to recognize risk, value their perceptions and feelings, and make choices that support their values.
In between running the province’s only drug rehabilitation center and finishing his college studies, Jerome is taking each day one at a time. “For me, everyday is drug prevention day,” he says.

A codependent person derives their self-esteem from caring for another, not themselves. They are overly involved and immersed in the person’s life. There can be issues of feeling guilty if they do not go along with the other person, and even putting themselves in an abusive or controlling situation. Their guilt, in turn, can lead to acts that “enable” the addict to maintain and carry in his addiction.
