The goals of the program include

  • Educating families and community members of the prevalence and harmful effects of alcohol and drug experimentation, use, and dependence among adolescents.
  • Providing resources for substance abuse prevention, treatment, and recovery.
  • Encouraging healthy choices among youth regarding the consequences of experimentation and addiction.
  • Enhancing school and community programming by providing an opportunity to become educated on an ever-evolving and prevalent topic.

" I can only hope that other communities, schools, and parents open their eyes and seek out Kids Escaping Drugs in a proactive educational manner before we lose more kids to substance abuse and addiction."

-Dennis Kenney,
Principal (retired), Iroquois High School
