Too Good for Drugs

Skill development is at the core of Too Good for Drugs, our universal K-12 prevention education program designed to mitigate the risk factors while enhancing the protective factors related to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use. The lessons introduce and develop social and emotional skills for making healthy choices, building positive friendships, developing self-efficacy, communicating effectively, and resisting peer pressure and influence.

The curriculum is tailored to build on previous lessons in order to provide a comprehensive program from kindergarten through high school. Each level builds on the core skill set of the students at their developmental level, utilizing interactive games and activities to create an experiential learning environment where students can learn and apply the skills in the classroom setting. As students grow and mature, the program evolves to meet their needs, providing new exercises and activities that build on previous lessons, and are tailored to the intellectual, cognitive, and social development of students at each age level.

Too Good for Drugs teaches five essential social and emotional learning skills, which research has linked to healthy development and academic success:

  • Setting Reachable Goals
  • Making Responsible Decisions
  • Bonding with Pro-social Others
  • Identifying and Managing Emotions
  • Communicating Effectively

"The holistic approach (school, student, family) to the program helps make sure that across the board the objectives are being supported and encouraged. The goal is to set the student up for success and this program helps the other adults in their lives to be a part of that as well."
