Kick Start Lifesaving Conversations About DRUG-FREE Living

There is an epidemic of prescription opioid misuse and heroin use nationwide. To combat this, Discovery Education and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) have joined forces to bring you Operation Prevention, an education program that aims to educate students, using science, about the impacts of these drugs. 

Designed for middle and high school students, educators and parents, Operation Prevention educates students about the science behind drug addiction and its impact, and includes resources that help initiate lifesaving conversations in the home and classroom.  The no-cost initiative offers standards-aligned digital classroom resources including lesson plans, and a parent toolkit.
In addition to this program, Discovery Education has over 30 partnerships in traditionally under resourced areas such as STEM, health & wellness, college & career readiness and more---that are all standards-aligned and available to schools and communities at no cost.
