Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week

October 23rd – 31st is National Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the nation. This year’s theme is “Love Yourself. Be Drug Free.”

“Nearly nine percent of United States youths ages 12 to 17 use illicit drugs, according to the National Survey of Drug Use Health’s Summary of National Findings. The same study showed that substance use by adolescents could be prevented through early interventions, including parental involvement. In fact, 96 percent of youths who perceived strong parental disapproval for trying marijuana once or twice remained drug free.”
