DEA Announces Culture-based Drug Prevention Tools to Educators

Publication Date: Apr 26, 2021

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in collaboration with Discovery Education and the National Indian Education Association (NIEA), has launched the “Good Medicine Bundles,” a set of hands-on, science-based, standards-aligned resources for elementary and middle school students to address the nation’s opioid crisis and encourage resiliency through a Native approach to balance and wellness. These resources aim to prevent substance misuse and abuse by reaching vulnerable Native populations at an early age, educating them about the consequences of bad decisions that lead to substance misuse, and offering alternatives that are in line with their cultural practices.
