The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) on fifth-grade students in the Long Beach Unified School District in Long Beach, California.
The research suggests that DARE does not significantly change the amount of drug use, which is minimal at the fifth grade level.
In general, children receiving DARE during the study period maintained existing levels of drug abuse.
Approximately 3,000 students participated in the study.
A pretest and posttest self-report survey was utilized during the Fall 1989 semester for experimental and control groups.
