Red Ribbon Week: 10/23-10/31

The Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions during Red Ribbon Week, October 23 – October 31 each year. Its sponsor, the National Family Partnership, is headquartered right here in our hometown of Miami. This year the campaign features a new blog with many ways to get involved, including taking the parent pledge to talk with young people about the dangers of drug abuse. Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t, yet only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.
