Our Programs

prevention works

Research has shown that drug addiction is both preventable and treatable. Addiction is a developmental disorder that often begins in adolescence, but as early as childhood. Addiction can be mitigated by preventing and increasing the age of initiation among youth. A vital component to mitigating experimental use among young people is utilizing effective prevention strategies and evidence-based programs.

Mascot Challenge

LP SADD is getting a mascot to bring a new element of fun and excitement to its prevention programs! Student leaders have selected a giraffe to represent the organization's mission to educate and empower students to make good choices. The giraffe needs a name, and we want you to name him! Give us your idea, and you could win the $250 or the equivalent for yourself and your school.
