Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.)
D.A.R.E. was established jointly by the Los Angeles Police Dept. and the Los Angeles school system in 1983 in an effort to reduce/eliminate the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs as well as the use of violent behavior by young people.
Adopted by the Bryan Police Department and Bryan Independent School District in 1988, the D.A.R.E. Program is now taught in schools and neighborhoods all over the world.
The curriculum is age appropriate and follows the D.A.R.E. Decision Making Model used in the resistance of drugs, including tobacco and alcohol abuse.
