Model Opioid Prevention Curriculum

Operation Prevention

A collaborative effort between the Drug Enforcement Administration and Discovery Education, Operation Prevention educates students about the impacts of opioids and helps kick-start lifesaving conversations in the home and classroom. The comprehensive, free, science-based program for ages 8–18 include a variety of resources, such as digital classroom lessons, video challenges, a parent toolkit, virtual field trips, and a student learning module, among other resources.

The HOPE Curriculum

The Health and Opioid Abuse Prevention Education (HOPE) Curriculum is a series of lessons, assessments, and learning materials to develop students’ functional knowledge, attitudes, and skills to prevent drug abuse. The middle and high school lessons are designed for a licensed health education teacher to implement within a health education class, and the elementary curriculum is designed for a classroom teacher to implement in 20-minute lessons that are aligned with the English Language Arts Standards. Lessons are designed to be part of a larger substance abuse prevention unit within a school’s health education curriculum.
