A true partner for parents in raising healthy children, we are fortunate to count on the perspective and input of the nation’s top addiction researchers and advocates and parents who have personal experience with the drug issue in their own lives.


We sincerely thank the members of our National Parent Network, Science Advisory Board, Advisory Board and other consultants for their invaluable counsel and enthusiasm in helping us further our mission.
