Drug Abuse Resistance Education, or D.A.R.E., is a nationally recognized program which teaches school-age children the dangers of drugs and how to avoid peer pressure and situations subjecting them to tobacco, alcohol, and drugs. We know that by reaching children at an early age they are more receptive to drug prevention education.
The objectives of D.A.R.E. are to: equip elementary, middle, and junior high students with the skills to recognize and resist social pressures that may lead them to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, and drugs; help students develop self-esteem; teach positive alternatives to substance abuse; develop skills for risk assessment and decision making; and build their interpersonal and communication skills. Please contact Public Safety Administration personnel by calling (334) 501-3110 to obtain more information regarding D.A.R.E. or to be directed to an Auburn Police Department D.A.R.E. program representative.
