Operation Prevention is a joint initiative by the Drug Enforcement Administration and Discovery Education. Participants will learn about the new components of the program that include multi-drug modules and the Native American/Alaska Native curricula.

Operation Prevention provides free curricula to educate elementary, middle, and high school students on the impacts of drug use, and kick-starts lifesaving conversations in the home and classroom. Operation Prevention includes digital download lesson bundles with interactive presentations and educator guides for each lesson, a guide for parents to help them.
