Operation Prevention Education Initiative
To combat America’s opioid and heroin epidemic, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, launched a joint nationwide education initiative called “Operation Prevention.”
Designed for elementary, middle, and high school students, educators and parents nationwide, Operation Prevention is an important effort to educate students about the science behind drug addiction and its impact, with resources that help initiate lifesaving conversations in the home and classroom. This no-cost initiative will arm students with the tools they need to make smart, informed choices when they are prescribed or presented with the opportunity to experiment with opioids. Program materials include:
- Educator lesson plans
- Interactive student resources
- Parent toolkit
- Workplace resources
