|The D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program is an internationally
recognized, model program created in 1983 by the Los Angeles Police
Department and the Los Angeles Unified School District.
D.A.R.E. provides students from kindergarten through high school with the
skills necessary to recognize and resist pressures to experiment with drugs
and to avoid gangs and violence. Lessons emphasize self-esteem, decision
making, interpersonal communications skills, the consequences of drug abuse,
conflict resolution and positive alternatives to substance abuse.
The most important facet of D.A.R.E. is the use of specially trained police
officers to deliver the curriculum within the schools. Police Officers are
accepted as authorities on drug abuse, as they deal with drug abuse and its
consequences on a daily basis.
