The focus of Red Ribbon Week today is on “Art, Addiction, Prevention, and Recovery”. Did you know thatart therapy is useful to people undergoing addiction treatment because it provides them with ways to understand and cope with their addiction? Art also gives young people better things to do than drugs. The arts have played an important prevention role not only by communicating positive messages, but also by involving young people in building life-enhancing skills.
