Mission Statement:

The mission of ACT on Drugs (ACT) is to provide non-judgmental drug education and prevention programming to raise awareness about the impact of substances on health and wellbeing, and to educate, encourage, and facilitate behaviors that result in active and healthy, drug-free lifestyles among youth.

Year founded: 2007
Programs:

ACT on Drugs signature programming centers around expansive drug education — especially for youth in the school setting. This business model has served ACT incredibly well over the years, providing a nonthreatening, non-judgmental approach to student education mainly through health education classes. Presentations are provided in-person by experienced trainers, who use a PowerPoint presentation but do not rely on video or written materials to convey the real dangers of taking drugs. When available, individuals in recovery or parents and family who have been adversely impacted by drugs also come to class to share the raw details of how drug addiction took over their lives. This model is received extremely well by students and is evolving and growing as we increase our connections in the community.

Populations Served: All Populations, Children and Youth
