Keeping Teens Safe and Sober
Below are resources we want to share with you and ways to get others involved to influence teens’ decision not to drink alcohol
Students Against Destructive Decisions’ (SADD’s) mission is “To provide 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 decisions.” SADD’s Prom Tool Kit http://www.sadd.org/campaign/taiprom.htm
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) A Guide to Safe and Sober Event Planning can help teenagers take the lead in planning alcohol-free celebrations. http://www.nhtsa.gov/people/injury/alcohol/PartiesRock/section1.html
Local Law enforcement will be working together over the prom and graduation season to help prevent accidents and enforce underage drinking events.
Preventing underage drinking is only a phone call away. Use this number to report underage drinking parties—planned or in progress. You can alsoreport establishments that serve alcohol to minors and people who sell fake identification.
The 1-888-UNDER-21 Hotline is administered in partnership with the Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention with funding from the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws Program, Pennsylvanians Against Underage Drinking, PA DUI Association, and the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.
