It’s Red Ribbon Week!
Launched in the early 1980s, with the help of the wonderful Nancy Reagan, the Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation. This year’s theme is “Life is Your Journey. Travel Drug Free.” and the hope is to mobilize teachers, parents, and communities to help create a drug-free future.
The most important thing we can do? EDUCATE!
The Red Ribbon Campaign provides some great curriculum ideas for each grade and an online course for high school students on prescription drugs.
START HERE: here are two things you can do today!
- Talk to your kids about the dangers of drugs – particularly opioids – and the importance of staying drug-free.
- Secure your medication, take inventory and properly dispose of unused or expired medication.
