The Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program teaches children not only to refuse illicit drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, but also how to avoid gangs and violence. The program stresses decision-making skills and resistance techniques through inter-active participation.

Consequences of taking illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco
Resistance techniques - peer pressure and media pressure
Assertiveness - confident response
Resisting gangs and violence/vandalism
Positive role models - high school students who have made positive choices in their lives
