The Future Quest curriculum is a functional curriculum to teach drug abuse prevention skills to youth with mild disabilities. The curriculum is a one-semester instructional program of lesson plans that incorporate research-based effective teaching practices and are specifically designed to meet the needs of students with learning and behavior problems. The "stranded" curriculum consists of 47 lessons, each of which consists of an activity from two content areas to provide students with repeated exposure to material and many opportunities to practice skills. The curriculum includes five content areas. The problem solving/rational behavior skills area teaches students a five-step problem solving strategy. The second area presents information about legal and illegal drug use and the effects of tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. The area of healthy lifestyles teaches practices to ensure physical and psychological well being. The area of family dynamics teaches students how to remain drug free when dealing with drug abuse in the family. The fifth area, that of social skills, presents a structured program of 10 skills.
