SADD is a peer leadership organization dedicated to providing students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, and other destructive behaviors. For more than a quarter-century, SADD has been recognized as a national leader in alcohol and drug education and prevention. In every community, the world of teenagers becomes more and more complex. Substance abuse, violence, suicide, negative influences on body image, and glorification of lowered value standards are threats to teens' well-being. With its expansion of focus to include destructive decisions outside of solely drinking and driving, SADD has become the premier youth-based education and prevention organization in America and maintains the ability to play a leading role in effective, evidence-based prevention programming.
