The «freelance» prevention program for secondary schools

«freelance» is a drug prevention program that offers flexible teaching units. The teaching staff can adapt the program to its own needs regarding issues to address and available time. The teaching units are based on the latest findings, statistics and facts concerning risks and consumption. The program is structured in three parts and contains the two main themes of «Tobacco/Alcohol/Cannabis» and «New Media».

The program was jointly contracted by the Swiss cantons of St.Gallen, Thurgau, Appenzell Ausserrhoden, Schaffhausen, Graubünden, Zug and Nidwalden and the Principality of Liechtenstein.
