We need your help to continue educating our youth.  Most public and private foundation give grants to rehabilitation facilities but not for preventive education. While the United States Surgeon General says that 20.8 million people are currently struggling with substance-use disorders and that is 1.5 times the number of people who suffer from every kind of cancer combined, very few foundations provide funding for prevention.  Annually we reach thousands of students.  All the teachers and students love the presentation and they know the value of the education but our funding is running out and we need your help!

Help Us Stop Youth Substance Abuse

Linda Harmon, on behalf of

ACT on Drugs

We hope to continue reaching middle and high school students with our very powerful & informative presentations. Many student-athletes become addicted after an injury because they did not know how fast addiction can happen. We want to continue to reach over 500 schools a year but funding is scarce.

Linda is the Executive Director of ACT on Drugs. This organization is doing an amazing job reaching thousands of students and teaching them about the dangers of drug addiction. Drug addiction and deaths from overdosing is an epidemic and affects all urban and rural socio-economic groups.
