By all accounts, D.A.R.E. is the preeminent drug prevention education program in the world. As such, many experts in education, science and medicine believe substance abuse prevention and anger management techniques must begin early in life. D.A.R.E. targets students when they are first exposed to violence and are most vulnerable to peer pressure to try drugs, tobacco and alcohol. D.A.R.E. helps children build their self-esteem, manage stress and anger, foresee behavioral consequences, resist pro-drug media messages and identify alternatives to alcohol and drug use. It doesn't just tell them to say "no", it teaches them how to say "no".The D.A.R.E. program accomplishes this by:
Providing students with accurate information about drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
Teaching students ways to resist drugs and violence while providing alternatives to drug use;
Teaching students decision-making skills and the consequences of their behavior; and
Building students' self esteem while teaching them how to resist peer pressure and make responsible choices.

The D.A.R.E Components:

K through 4th Grade Visitations: This component acquaints children with the D.A.R.E. officer and lays the groundwork for the classroom lessons they will receive in the elementary program with a strong emphasis on personal safety.

Elementary School Curriculum: As the foundation of the D.A.R.E. program, the elementary curriculum is taught at the 5 th or 6 th grade level and provides students with the skills they will need as young adults to avoid gang violence and to resist the temptations of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and inhalants. This newly developed ten (10) lesson program includes strong student interaction and classroom participation by using facilitation instructional techniques.
