BENEFITING: Partnership for A Drug Free America, Inc.
Transform stigma, isolation and fear into Strength, Hope and Change.
We at the Partnership at Drugfree.org, a national nonprofit that helps parents of teens, are leading a nationwide cause campaign, You Are Not Alone. Because 90% of addiction starts in the teen years, the goal of this campaign is to initiate change so that together we can lower the barriers parents face in getting their teens the effective treatment and recovery support they deserve. You Are Not Alone will begin creating a new dialogue around addiction, and leveraging the power of individual stories.
We know addiction brings with it stigma, doubt and hopelessness that often stand in the way of getting young people the help they need and deserve. You Are Not Alone is dedicated to supporting the 11 million young people who are struggling with drug and alcohol problems. The earlier a teen gets the help they need, the better the outcome for a healthy life and transition into adulthood.
Our goal is to let parents, teens and family members know that they’re NOT alone. With the voices of many, we can demonstrate that drug and alcohol abuse/addiction is a society-wide problem. It affects young people in families of all races/ethnicities, at all income levels and in every walk of life.
We aim to connect with families and parents who often feel isolated, afraid and uninformed and let them know there are answers and support, that it’s not their fault and that their child can recover.
