Natural High Presentation Instructions
What is a Natural High?
A natural high is experienced when a person participates in an activity that makes them feel good, but doesn’t involve drugs. Doing things that you enjoy releases natural feel-good chemicals in your brain like dopamine, which regulates movement, emotion, motivation, and pleasure. A natural high is defined as a euphoric or excited state that is not due to ingestion of drugs or another substance (drugabuse.gov).
