Fifty-two thousand lives are lost to addiction each year. That’s 144 people per day. Every family’s story about struggling with a loved one’s substance use is unique, yet their experiences are often remarkably similar. These families know about addiction first-hand and open up about the fear, helplessness, isolation, and heartache they have faced. Follow their journeys as they find hope and learn how the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids helps families like these.

Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is committed to helping families struggling with their son or daughter’s substance use. We empower families with information, support and guidance to get the help their loved one needs and deserves. On our website, drugfree.org, and through our toll-free helpline (1-855-DRUGFREE), we provide families with direct support and guidance to help them address teen substance use. Finally, we build healthy communities, advocating for greater understanding and more effective programs to treat the disease of addiction. As a national nonprofit, we depend on donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and the public sector and are thankful to SAG-AFTRA and the advertising and media industries for their ongoing generosity. We are proud to receive a Four-Star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, as well as a National Accredited Charity Seal from The Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.
