Drug Free Clubs of America was founded by firefighters in the Greater Cincinnati area, with the promising idea that if teen drug use never begins, it never has to be defeated.
So how do we prevent teens from experimenting or giving into peer pressure? By giving students a logical exit from a tough situation. The offer from a friend or neighbor to try a drug can be a powerful, intimidating situation. DFCA's approach to preventing student drug abuse gives members the ability to say “I Can’t, I might get tested”. In addition, Drug Free Clubs creates perfect opportunities for parents to talk to their child about drug abuse, and then reinforces each member's good choices through discounts, free items, special event days, and recognition in the community and at school for choosing to be drug free.
Drug Free Clubs of America combines:
1. A reasonable excuse to escape peer pressure.
2. Prompted moments and guidance for parents to communicate with their child.
3. Continuous tangible rewards encourage members to make ongoing healthy decisions.
