Teen drug addiction is a life or death issue. Help save lives now!

The Partnership for a Drug-Free America’s 2009 Annual Fund is underway. Our goal is to raise $2 million for numerous programs that protect and save lives. Here are some ways your gift will help families:

• By creating the first-ever Adolescent & Young Adult Treatment Network, we can help 8.5 million people under 25 suffering from the disease of addiction find the quality medical care they need. Currently, fewer than 10% get treatment.

• We help parents, teens and medical professionals learn about the dangers of abusing prescription medicines, which continues to receive broad coverage throughout the media.

• Time To Act offers compassionate, science-based and streamlined guidance for parents who suspect or know their child is experimenting with drugs or alcohol – to help them have productive conversations, set limits and take confident action.

This year, 4.2 million teens will use an illicit drug or alcohol, and over 100,000 Americans will die drug- and alcohol-related deaths. We know it doesn’t have to be that way. Your gift will help save lives! Act now!

Because of your donations, the Partnership’s programs make a difference. Since we started in 1987, teen drug use has fallen by half, overall illicit drug use is down by 32%, and in this decade, cocaine, LSD, Ecstasy, meth and marijuana use continues to decline. This is all because of your life-saving, life-changing support to help families across the country.

Working together is our best hope to keep young people healthy and drug-free. I hope we can count on your support for our 2009 Annual Fund. Your help now means more than ever. Donate today at
