Take part in youth substance use prevention month by celebrating the largest and longest-running drug-use prevention campaign, Red Ribbon Week! Check out the following resources and share to help prevent youth substance use!

Access Red Ribbon Week materials here.

Incorporate the #OneChoice health goal into your prevention messaging and program. One Choice is no use of any alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, or other drugs under the age of 21 for reasons of health. One Choice is centered on three essential facts:

  1. The developing brain is uniquely vulnerable to substance use
  2. All teen substance use is related
  3. There are a growing number of teens choosing not to use any alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, or other drugs
