As the year comes to a rapid close, I hope you will consider giving a tax-deductible gift to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids today.
Substance abuse crosses all social and economic boundaries, yet few recognize its far and devastating reach. Whether you’re poor or rich, male or female, young or old – chances are you have been affected by substance abuse and addiction.
We are working at every level to prevent more lives from being affected by this deadly illness: educating prescribers, teachers and community leaders about its dangers; helping teens to better handle their stress and remain above the influence of drugs and alcohol; coaching parents to communicate better with their kids with an alternative to the tough-love approach.
And despite inadequate federal funding for substance abuse prevention – we are giving communities the tools they need to help end the prescription drug abuse and heroin epidemic plaguing our nation.
The time is NOW. We are changing the perception of addiction in this country and creating a movement which includes robust solutions to end this public health crisis. This is an investment in our children’s futures. Many studies have shown that for every dollar we spend on preventing and treating addiction, we save between $4 to $7 in healthcare and other costs.
Will you invest in us?
Please make a tax-deductible donation to the Partnership right now to ensure that all families get the help they need to prevent and address teen substance abuse and addiction.
Thank you for your support. Have a healthy, happy and safe new year.

President and CEO
