Partnership for Drug-free Kids
 New Campaign Asks Teens, “Who Controls You?” 

Last week, we unveiled a new multimedia campaign, which asks teens “Who Controls You?” The new spots illustrate some of the pressures they face, including peer pressure to drink and use drugs, issues with body image and bullying, among others.

The new work was created pro-bono by advertising agency, Hill Holliday, production company Adolescent and award-winning, social media influencer, Maris Jones, as part of the Partnership’s Above the Influence teen program.
