Stress and Anger Management Workshop

Participants will learn to identify their stressors, stress symptoms, anger expression style, communication style, and positive techniques for managing anger, conflict, and stress.

R.A.C.E. Training: Suicide Prevention

Never leaving a Marine behind extends beyond the battlefield and beyond the base. Strong, knowledgeable, and aware families can identify when someone is in need, and step in to help before it’s too late. It is often difficult to recognize the signs of severe depression among adults and adolescents. Gaining a better understanding of the problem, and learning what tools and resources are available can help save lives. This free workshop is open all ID cardholders. Please call Resilence Education, 910-451-2865 to register.


PRIME For Life is an alcohol and substance abuse prevention program for people of all ages. It is designed to gently but powerfully challenge common beliefs and attitudes that directly contribute to high-risk alcohol and drug use. A primary goal of PRIME For Life is prevention of any type of alcohol or drug problem. This includes prevention of health problems such as alcoholism, or impairment problems such as car crashes or fights. Emphasis is on knowing and understanding risks one cannot change and reducing risks one can change. Using a persuasion-based approach, instructors use a variety of delivery methods, including interactive presentation and small group discussion.

Material is presented using a DVD platform with animation, full-motion video clips, audio clips, and a participant workbook to enhance the
learning experience.

Drug Demand Reduction

Prevalence of Specific Drug Use:

Marijuana remains the drug most commonly used by military personnel.

Illicit Drug Use and Productivity Loss:

Illicit drug use was related to productivity loss as measured by being late for work, leaving work early, being hurt in an on-the-job accident, working below one’s normal level of performance, and not coming to work because of illness or injury.



The Drug Education for Youth is a 2-part substance abuse prevention program of the Department of Defense for children ages 9 through 12. D.E.F.Y. is designed to deter “at-risk” youth behavior in children by helping them develop social and coping skills needed to resist drug abuse and illegal drug use. The program begins with an 8-day non-residential summer camp followed by monthly meetings during the remainder of the year. For more information, contact the Program Coordinator at 910-451-0822.




The assistant secretary of defense designates the last full week of October as red ribbon week-the celebration of drug abuse prevention and education in the military services. Red ribbon week honors the memory of drug enforcement administration special agent and former marine Enrique s. Camarena, who was murdered by drug traffickers in 1985. This annual observance of the continuing work to make a drug-free marine corps will be marked by commands setting aside time to emphasize the benefits of pursuing a drug-free lifestyle.




Professional Military Education (PME) may be provided to all interested units desiring to augment or fulfill unit training requirements in areas of substance abuse. The areas for training include: Illegal/Illicit drugs, prescription medication abuse, and
Over-The-Counter (OTC) medication abuse. The training can be tailored to suit the audience. Senior leadership training and junior enlisted training is available. Anyone interested in having a class, please contact the DDR Team, 910-451-2865.




This workshop is provided to designated Unit Substance Abuse Program Representatives; i.e. Urinalysis Coordinators, Substance Abuse Control Specialists (SACS), and Substance Abuse Control Officers (SACOs). This workshop provides them with the knowledge of the correct procedures required to collect, package, and ship urine specimens to the appropriate Navy Drug Screening Laboratory. Course materials are provided and mandatory testing is required for certification. Please contact the DDR Team, 910-451-2865.




This management training session is for newly appointed Substance Abuse Control Officers (SACO) and Substance Abuse Control Specialists. Through this curriculum, SACOs and SACS are trained as mandated by MCO P1700.24B on the disciplines of their duties. As a result of completion of the education, needs assessment and unit annual prevention planning can be developed. The uniqueness of the curriculum is that it is simple and user-friendly enough to address various audiences and yet, it is comprehensive in its content.
