Today I worked on my postcard. This week’s theme is substance abuse prevention. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, addiction is defined as “a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences. It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to many harmful, often self-destructive, behaviors.” In addition to working on my postcard, we also got to go to the park. It was nice to get out of the building for a while. I am looking forward to coming back tomorrow.
