Keepin’ it REAL is a multicultural, school-based substance use prevention program for students 12-14 years old. Trained classroom teachers lead students through a 10-lesson narrative and performance-based curriculum, which draws from communication competence theory and a culturally grounded resiliency model to incorporate traditional ethnic values and practices that protect against substance use. The overall goal is to help students assess the risks associated with substance use, enhance decision-making and resistance strategies, improve anti-drug normative beliefs and attitudes, and reduce substance use.
