DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION BREAKTHROUGH
Drug Use Education
Medical Drug Administration & First Aid
For Personal Safety & the Safety of OthersI
Our children become what they learn. Since the
1960s, France has been the only nation to adopt mandatory first aid
medical training in the primary school curriculum, enabling all
citizens to partake in strengthening their nation's healthcare, sharing
the responsibility by helping themselves and each other.
Meanwhile, the U.S. that had been regarded the leader in medicine during
the post WWII era, released a drug policy that curbed public
responsibility by injecting fear and ignorance into society that it
thought would protect American citizens from the scourge of drug abuse.
Rather than inducting a team with medical education and experience to
guide society, the U.S. Government decided upon a military approach to
control drugs. Because teaching first aid conflicts with stringent
U.S. drug policy that portrays the public as helpless with no
self-sustaining control over drugs, teaching the public first aid and
how to use drugs properly has always been a contradiction.,
When the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) published
the World Health Report that ranked France -- the nation whose
healthcare is the fourth higherst in cost -- number one in
performance among the 190 UN member nations with healthcare
systems. World renowned as the highest in cost, the healhcare
system in the U.S. placed a dismal 38 in performance.
It was a shock that resounded throughout the globlal healthcare
As elite American scholars continue to dispute not only the results of
the UN study, but also the process implemented by the WHO in ranking
each nation, there is a great deal of clarity from down inside the
trenches where the gap between physicians and patients has disabled all
In comparison to France and all other nations clustered to the left side
of the graph above, the U.S. appears to be a distant island in a
determination of each nation's healthcare performance-cost ratio,
in which, fair-costing healthcare services fall within the range between
0.01 and 3.0.
U.S. healthcare performance-cost efficiency ratio was by far the
worst imaginable with Switzerland second with a ratio of 20/2 = 10.
If Americans choose to reject the findings in the World Health
Report 2000, or the grave evidence exptrapolated from it, what
cannot be ignored are the body counts of drug abusers.
In the North American region -- particularly, the U.S., drug-induced
mortality continues to rise with the highest percentage per capita
How poignant that the solutions to reform healthcare, prevent drug
abuse, gun control, and improve our society rests within the
boundaries of K12 education and what each individual brings from that
education and not increasing healthcare costs, funding the War on
Drugs, banning drugs and "assault weapons", hiring more law enforcement
officers, or building more prisons.
Parents Who Care Teach Their Kids
To Do the Right Thing
don't teach our kids to mumble;
we teach them to talk.
We don't teach our kids to stumble;
we teach them to walk.
We wouldn't teach our kids the wrong answer to a math problem or
how to spell a word incorrectly; we want
them to spell it the right way; we want our kids to have the right
answers... to everything. except how to be responsible citizens in a
world of drugs and substances.
The answer is not a drug-free world. The answer is a
drug-educated world which maintains a focus on medical drug
use. The cause of drug abuse is largely an educational deficiency
that results when law enforcement and other persons of authority use
drug abuse awareness programs to present a myopic prejudicial view of
drugs that criminalizes the sick. (Richard Paey) while it serves
the interest of those delivering the awareness information.
Drug Abuse Awareness is The Wrong Answer
Because It Teaches Kids How to Abuse Drugs
Drug abuse awareness is
a fear-based informational tool that propagates knowledge about the
undesirable behavior as a foundation for presenting the dangers it
causes but without disclosing corrective safe drug use guidelines
because it supports abstinence as the only alternative to drug abuse.
It may only take a few seconds for a K12 student to be driven to make
use of the information learned during an awareness program, or it could
take many years before the adult graduate is confronted by the
opportunity to abuse a drug, Throughout 4 years of interviewing
illicit drug users for two in-depth drug user case history studies
(Stanford, 2004; UCLA, 2006), about 70% of those who attended
DARE, or comparable awareness program, revealed it had influenced
their decision to use an illicit drug. Of that 70%, 34% said that
they might have never abused an illicit drug had it not been for the
discouragement they had from an awareness program. All of
them became routine drug users after discovering the drug had produced
benefits in their lives.
Evidence shows how DARE and other drug
abuse awareness programs promote drug abuse rather than prevent it.
Another Wrong Answer
Drug abuse / addiction training for healthcare practitioners, "raises
the level of fear", while drawing upon prejudicial attitudes
towards patients as the practitioner makes decisions about
treatment. Providers are encouraged to determine who is abusing drugs.
Quite often the practitioner's empathetic availability is compromised
as patient visits suddenly become incidents
behavior". An indoctrinated practitioner becomes a source of
danger to patients, requiring a controlled
substance medication for pain relief or to treat a chronic or acute
medical disorder. The practitioner reduces, stops, or never
administers medication that is necessary. The patient becomes a
victim of healthcare.
THE MEDICATION YOUR PROVIDER IS PRESCRIBING isn't
an atomic bomb! It shouldn't seem like one. If you find that your
provider is redirecting you to a reduced quantity or quality of a
controlled substance medication or fails to provide you any
medication that you need, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
what occurred along with the any information you can disclose about
your physician. Provide examples of how your physician's behavior is impacting your life.
The Right Answer
Drug Use Education
Drug use is not a crime,
disease, or disorder; it is a normal human behavior characterized by the
need for mandatory public education, providing besic and advanced first
aid, fundamental pharmacotherapeutic knowledge and discipline skills in
drug administration to ensure adherence to dose / frequency / duration
calculations and the ability to continually assess individual response
paradigm proposed in the Drug
Use Education Process Initiative (DPI), applies
conventional evidence-based education in the delivery of mandatory
first aid, drug administration training, along with medical and pharmacology
instruction for all K12 students in classrooms, online, and within
local community and teaching hospitals where students learn from
medical and administrative staff while participating in studies,
projects, voluntary roles, and perhaps even paid work assignments
while optionally undergoing individual and group evaluations by
qualified health care professionals.
SAFETY; NOT ABSTINENCE IS THE PRIORITY of
the only educational program that can deliver sensible
training for K12 students comprised of Basic and Advanced First Aid
training proposed by the National Academy of Sciences in the EMS White Paper (1966);
Drug Administration, including dose calculations; Personal
Medical Management that will enable citizens to handle routine
illness and enable patients to communicate better with providers,
reducing the incidence of discrimination; Nutrition and
Pharmacology that provides a solid foundation of how medicine and
food interact with the human body; and, Safety and Discipline Skills
that will form an integral part of all course work and activity.
This is education that builds PUBLIC
Use Education Process demonstrates
how broader interpretations of pharmacotherapeutic necessity can
transform adverse social behavior into individualized and safely
care, extending the privilege
for equal drug access to
adult citizens following completion of K12 medical and pharmacology
education, and / or post-graduate training and licensing with the
purposes to provide basic and advanced first aid medical support,
treat common disorders, disease, and injuries independent of a
medical practitioner, and enhance the quality of healthcare
encounters at every stage of life, while
permitting medically beneficial responsible drug use, thus, mitigating
due process violations and the demand for illicit substances. The
DUE Process model was cast as the centerpiece of the Drug
Use Education Process Initiative submitted
to Senator Dianne Feinstein in March 2008. The DUE
Process Model was
inspired by President Lyndon Johnson’s 1966 program enforcing motor
