Keep A Clear Mind
Program Type: Resources - Information or materials that might help develop a program/project in a community but can not be defined as a Best Practice, Promising Practice, or Local Effort.
Keep a Clear Mind (KACM) is a take-home drug education program for upper elementary school students 8 to 12 years old and their parents. The take-home material consists of 4 weekly set of activities to be completed by parents and their children together. The program also uses parent newsletters and incentives. KACM lessons are based on a social skills training model and designed to help children develop specific skills to refuse and avoid the use of "gateway" drugs. This unique, early intervention program has been shown to positively influence known risk factors for later substance use.
