What is 

Pennsylvania Recovery Organization - Achieving Community Together (PRO-ACT) is a grassroots advocacy and recovery support initiative of The Council covering Southeastern

PRO-ACT works to reduce the stigma of addiction, ensure the availability of adequate treatment and recovery support services, and to influence public opinion and policy regarding the value of recovery.

The week of October 23rd through October 31st is a week focused on parents' involvement in drug prevention throughout the United States. This year's theme is "Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free" for National Red Ribbon Week.
Red Ribbon Week is sponsored by the National Family Partnership (NFP), a nonprofit organization created by parents dedicated to drug prevention and advocacy. The NFP is partnered with hundreds of groups and organizations across the country. They provide awareness, advocacy and resources to parents who want to keep the conversation about drug use open with their children.
Only 25 percent of parents talk to their children about drug use. These children are then over 40 percent less likely to experiment with drugs. So why aren't more parents having conversations with their children on this topic? The NFP and Red Ribbon Week hope to bring more awareness to the topic so more parents discuss dangerous drug use with their children.
To get involved in the Red Ribbon Campaign, you are encouraged to wear a red ribbon on your clothing throughout the week, participate in local community events focused on this topic or create an open dialogue with your own children.

Click here to learn more about the Red Ribbon Campaign, or to sign the pledge.  

What's the pledge about?

  1. As parents and citizens, we will talk to our children and the children in our lives about the dangers of drug abuse.
  2. We will set clear rules for our children about not using drugs.
  3. We will set a good example for our children by not using illegal drugs or medicine without a prescription.
  4. We will monitor our children's behavior and enforce appropriate consequences, so that our rules are respected.
  5. We will encourage family and friends to follow the same guidelines to keep children safe from substance abuse.
For tips and resources to help you talk with your youth, please contact The Council's Prevention Program:
