Safe and Sober Pledges save lives

During our 16 years of preventing substance misuse, we've reached hundreds of thousands of students in Missouri and far beyond.

These teens learned the dangers of underage drinking, impaired driving, illegal substances, opioid and prescription misuse, vaping, and more. Each student then had the opportunity to make a commitment to themselves, either by filling out a manual pledge card or taking the Safe and Sober pledge online.
