Partnership for Drug-free Kids

Advanced Screening of New Partnership Documentary at Google

Earlier this month, we co-hosted an advanced screening of our new documentary, BREAKING POINTS, with Google at their headquarters in Mountain View, California. The film explores the stress and pressure teens face every day, and the unhealthy ways they cope. BREAKING POINTS will formally launch this April and will be available for download

Help Get the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act Passed

The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) recently passed in the Senate with a vote of 94-1! While this is an important milestone, the bill moves to the House of Representatives and we need to keep the pressure on.

On the House side, Representatives Frank Guinta (R-NH), Ann Kuster (D-NH), Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Donald Norcross (D-NJ) began circulating a sign-on letter in support of CARA appropriations, encouraging their colleagues to sign on to provide resources for CARA in FY 2017.

Contact your Members of Congress and urge them to sign on to the CARA funding letter >
