Description: There is a significantly high number of drug misuse and abuse by teenagers (SAMHSA, 2020), however, previous prevention programs have yet to highlight real life situations that are culturally responsive (Maina, 2020). We suggest a virtual prevention program for elementary students (4th and 5th graders) that can be utilized in various settings. This program is based on fun and playful role-play, artwork, expressive writing and meditation. We will provide downloadable materials and demonstrate how to facilitate the program.
