Parents. The Anti-Drug is a community based organization comprised of parents, local government and school officials, clergy and health providers whose mission is to generate conversation and provide accurate information about alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use in Bannockburn, Deerfield, Highland Park, Highwood, and Riverwoods.
- create a more informed adult and teen citizenry
- increase communication among parents and teens
- and ultimately result in less consumption of alcohol, tobacco and other
drugs among teens in our communities.
We have developed a strong, dedicated coalition that surrounds youth and their parents with support in all their contexts: home, school, and community. We believe that to best meet our community needs, we must encourage collaborative dialogue among our community members and key stakeholders and to seek local partners and resources to support our efforts.
Parents. The Anti-Drug is funded primarily through a grant from the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park. Additional funding support is received from school PTO's, municipalities, service organizations, and individual donors.
