The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Discovery Education have created Operation Prevention's classroom resources, which provides educators with curriculum aligned to national health and science standards. Through a series of hands-on investigations, these resources introduce learners to the science behind opioids, and their impact on the brain and body. Operation Prevention has reached over 1M individuals nationwide, and is available in English and Spanish. While its primary audience is K-12 learners, the high school curriculum is also applicable to adult education populations.
Is the opioid crisis impacting learners in your communities? If so, what are you doing to help educate learners about the risks of addiction?
