Welcome to Keepin' it REAL


A culturally grounded drug prevention curriculum for grades 6-9 that has been proven effective for reducing drug use and establishing anti-drug attitudes and beliefs.  The kiR program teaches kids HOW to say "no" to alcohol, tobacco and other drugs without losing friendships.  The kiR program enhances life skills such as decision-making, communication and drug-resistant strategies.  The curriculum includes ten lessons and four videos developed by and for kids which have been tested by researchers with over 7,000 middle-school students in Phoenix, Arizona.  The kiR curriculum is identified as a Model Program by the Center for Substance Abuse Programs (CSAP) at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
