PDFA. The Partnership for a Drug-Free America
Introduction

The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids translates the science of teen drug use and addiction into actionable information and guidance. We help families understand the ever-changing drug landscape, learn how to effectively communicate with teens, and provide direct support to parents dealing with a child’s drug use. And we strengthening communities by advocating for greater prevention efforts and improved access to treatment and recovery.

How We Do It


Parent Support Network

The Parent Support Network is a system of care for parents whose teen and young adult children are struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. Via our free helpline (1-855-DRUGFREE), parents can connect with a specialist ready to listen and propose an appropriate course of action. Further support is available in the form of peer-to-peer coaching from parents who have “been there” with their own families, and are trained in the evidence-based principles of Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) to help those struggling now. For parents who aren’t ready to call or are simply unsure, there are resources and tools throughout this site to help assess and begin addressing your family’s needs.


Medicine Abuse Project

The Medicine Abuse Project is a national action campaign created in response to the current epidemic of prescription drug abuse. It rallies parents, educators, healthcare providers and law enforcement to collectively help bring an end to the crisis. The project launched in 2012 with a five-year goal of reducing the onset of teen prescription drug abuse by half a million. Education and awareness efforts promote proper safeguarding anddisposal of unused medication, while advancing intervention and treatment resources to those currently abusing.


Youth Programming

Above the Influence (ATI) and the Meth Project are two of the nation’s most impactful youth prevention programs. Inspired by what teens tell us about the influences shaping their daily lives, Above the Influence offers a message of positive self-expression and healthy decision-making. It reaches teens through public service advertising, online engagement and by equipping schools and organizations across the country with materials and resources to better serve their local youth. The Meth Project was founded in 2005 in direct response to the country’s growing meth epidemic. Its marketing messages, community action programs and in-school lesson are used by member states to prevent teen use.


Public Education Campaigns

Through our public education initiatives – including the longest-running single-issue public service campaign in advertising history – we empower millions of parents to better prevent and treat substance abuse in their families. We maintain a wealth of resources that help parents at any and every point in the process – from the earliest steps in prevention to navigating recovery. Combined with advocacy for greater access to adolescent treatment and recovery support, we’re building healthier, stronger communities.
