As I sat writing this letter, an email appeared in my inbox:
"I wanted to thank you for all you do. It is because of you that my son is in treatment right now. I had written to The Partnership at Drugfree.org last year in desperate need of help with our son. We are taking it a day at a time, but for the first time in years - we have hope."
That note brought me hope as well. It was one of those daily reminders of our absolute accountability to all who seek our services; partner with us; see and hear our education messages; fund our prevention, intervention and treatment programs; and believe in what we do. A blend of passionate and disciplined commitment to our mission makes a difference in people's lives.
Our vision is a world where all young people will be able to live their lives free of drug and alcohol abuse.
We work toward this in a myriad of big and small ways. In this annual report, we invite you to read about two of the many Partnership programs that are helping families in a direct and personal way - our Parents Toll-Free Helpline and Parents360 Plus.
Thank you for all that you do to make a true, lasting impact in the lives of families.
President and CEO
