The Drug Abuse Resistance Education program known as D.A.R.E has become a very widespread and popular program throughout the United States. The program appeals to all ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic lines, which is a large part of the reason why the DARE program has grown exponentially. The program’s basic premise was meant to introduce kids to the danger of drugs, before the drugs got to them. The implementation of the DARE program appeared to be what America needed to begin to put a dent in the war on drugs.
Have you ever had a family member or friend that have had problems with alcohol,tobacco products,or even bullying? Well in D.A.R.E. (which stands for Drug,Abuse,Resistance,Education, or Define,Assess,Respond,Evaluate),we learned how to handle all of these problems with the DDMM (D.A.R.E. Decision Making Model).
Even though drug testing is very expensive, ALL high school’s athletes should be tested because drugs are bad for your health and very addictive. A simple drug test could save many lives. Many schools around deny the request to drug test their athletes for the simple conclusion that the cost of the testing would just be to expensive. I disagree whole heartedly on that because although it may be expensive, we could save so many lives by requiring drug tests to play sports. Many students have love for the game who would have no problem giving up drugs for the chance to play sports with drug tests and a little guidance.
Another prevention program is the school-based Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program (D.A.R.E). D.A.R.E. is a non-profit tax-exempt organization that oversees the training law enforcement receives in order to provide education in the schools on drug use. D.A.R.E also markets for the program, licenses merchandise, and conducts assessment and research. D.A.R.E has 4 regional training centers that are funded annually by the U.S. Department of Justice grant. In addition, states receive individual funding from different sources (Cost of D.A.R.E, 2014).

The Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) is a program that provides children with the proper skills when it comes to drugs and violence. The law enforcement also works within the community.

America’s been losing the Drug War for 40 years! In 1971, President Richard Nixon declared a war on drugs. This war has lasted forty years, a time-span longer than every other American War. The USA is losing the Drug War by wasting money on methods that don’t work, and continuing
These programs help educate children to the dangers of drugs and alcohol. In addition, faculty learn the signs and symptoms of these abuses. Some programs go to the extent of having guest speakers, the same age as the students, giving their testimony to how a substance affected them. Many organizations such as the Office of Juvenile Justice and Deliquency Prevention and the Department of Education, who made the Truency Reducation Demonstration Program. These two organizations specifically target areas with high truancy rates and offer training on reducing these numbers through reward programs and other incentives (Henry, 2010). The National Association of School Nurses have created “Smart Moves, Smart Choices,” as an education program for substance abuse prevention. Along with, the National Education Association who provide materials to schools and curriculum ideas for integrating prevention programs into the classroom (Schachter, 2012). Within this curriculum, there are short videos that grab students attention along with guest speaker who have first hand experiences with substance abuse. As a more preventative measure, schools are inacting Suspicionless Random Drug testing that can be administered to students in particular schools. More schools are even going to this type of preventative measures. The Office of National Drug Control Policy is actively trying to gather funds for schools to
Firstly, the Herren Project is founded by a former addict who has experienced the ways addiction is treated. According to Sober Nation, the world’s leading online addiction treatment resource, The Herren Project was launched to “break the cycle of substance abuse,” and make the real idea of addiction known to all (Powers). THP knows all about the addiction methods because it is founded by someone who has gone through things many addicts go through. This helps with advising current addicts. Secondly, The Herren Project is working assiduously to change the way children are educated about drugs. In an ABC news article, Chris Herren, the founder of the Herren Project, explains that “society needs to change the way it educates kids about substance abuse [...] ‘We have to show them the beginning, the day one and where it starts’” (Yurong). The Herren Project focuses to educate children who are at risk for addiction above all. Those who cope with much stress, or live in cities with many cases of addiction get educated by the organization which lessen their chances of being addicted. Moreover, according to a CNN article, “In one year, the Herren Project has already privately paid for more than 100 addicts to receive the treatment they otherwise could never have afforded on their own” (Conlon). The Herren project also helps addicts pay for treatment if they cannot afford it on their own, this aids this issue of treatment being too expensive. In addition to that, THP also helps addicts find good facilities to attend as well. Lastly, teens can help by getting involved through THP’s website. Teens can click on the “Getting Involved” tab on their website to donate and be apart of fundraisers and runs for the Herren Project. Additionally, teens can start a Community THP Project Purple

Good Evening Salina, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this DQ. As always, I enjoyed reading your perspective. I wanted to comment on a couple of points you made. First comment I want to mention is your statement “I believe that many educators feel that if they can get a child’s behavior under control, they will then in turn be able to move on and focus on academics. This is typically why the focus is primarily on controlling inappropriate behavior.” I agree with you on this. I believe that initially, teachers with students with EBD feel that they can easily or quickly control a student’s unwanted behavior to the point where it does not effect his or her academic instruction. However, as we learned from our reading this can be just the
A great reason is that D.A.R.E can is good is that it can tell you drugs that you never knew like meth. D.A.R.E it can help you realize side effects of drugs and what could happen if you took them such as misjudgement or dizziness. Lastly it can help you make decisions with the decision making model which is Define,Assess,Respond,and Evaluate also known as D.A.R.E
The importance of preventing children from drug usage starts at early ages. Education and school facilities can only occupy children for 7-8 hours a day. The rest of the afternoon leaves children vulnerable to negative influences. Most children use after-school programs as a way to stay out of trouble, escape the turmoil of being abused at home, or spend time with youth instead of being lonely and alienated.
School –based drug use- prevention programs such as DARE, Project Alert, and Life Skills Training program have been designed to keep kids from illiciting drugs. Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) is an educational program usually delivered by a police officer. The 17 week program components are learning refusal skills, teen leaders, making a public commitment not to use illicit drugs. Also, affective education components include: self-esteem building, alternatives to drug use and decision making. Research on the effectiveness of
