The Neuroscience of Addiction Program

Creative, Fun-Filled, Hands-On, Engaging

The Neuroscience of Addiction Program

It's your job to keep your community drug-free and healthy.

You need exciting new ways to educate kids and help them make healthier choices. In today's distracted world, you have to hook them with lessons that stick. Medical Inflatables' new, the interactive Neuroscience of Addiction Program does just that.

We teach people about the dangers of drugs and alcohol with our larger-than-life inflatable organs-MEGA Brain, MEGA Heart and MEGA Lungs-expert instruction from our engaging staff of paramedics, nurses and nurse practitioners, and creative, fun-filled games and hands-on activities.

We focus on today's most pressing issues and substances.

Program participants see for themselves while walking through our MEGA exhibits just how substances can hurt their major organs-their brain, heart and lungs. Fun, interactive games-such as students acting out what regular neuro function looks like, versus a brain on drugs-really help the lessons sink in.

We've developed our Neuroscience of Addiction program for middle and high school kids and have already seen great success in teaching hundreds of teens. Our MEGA Exhibits can facilitate partnerships and connections between kids of all ages. High school kids who've gone through our program might create a lesson they take to your local middle school to drive the learning home for younger kids.

But our program isn't just for children. Our exhibits are the perfect way to teach your entire community about how to live a healthy life. They can give parents the confidence they need to speak to their children about substance abuse, including:

  • Binge Drinking
  • Vaping and Juuling
  • Marijuana
  • Opioids
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Amphetamines
