Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is a school-based drug education program conceived to help prevent drug abuse.
This 17 week program places a uniformed officer in the elementary school's fifth grade classes, teaching children the facts concerning drug abuse and strategies on how to resist the offer of drugs and alcohol. The program also promotes self esteem and enhances decision making skills. Follow-up sessions are now conducted at the seventh grade level to reinforce the program they received in fifth Grade.
