Too Good For Drugs is an evidence-based, interactive classroom curriculum designed to help students learn: cognitive skills for making decisions, how to manage emotions; and social strategies to refuse peer pressure.

Through grade-specific lesson kits utilizing dolls, puppets, games, characters and other fun interactions Too Good For Drugs engages staff and students in age-appropriate positive team learning about the consequences of using alcohol and other drugs.
