This paper argues that there has been no research to substantiate the effect of the D.A.R.E. program and that empirically there has been no reduction in the use of drugs in the areas that use the popular program. The paper states that D.A.R.E.'s message to children is jumbled because it does not tell them that, at all times, they should never use drugs. The author believes that D.A.R.E. is footed on unverified learning theory; the most infamous one of which is that using drugs is an indication of low self-worth or of elevated strain.
