"Develop a Plan" Campaign Encourages Teens and Young Adults to Have a Strategy to Avoid Situations Involving Drugs and Alcohol
Launch of Campaign Coincides with National Prevention Week
The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) today announced the launch of the "Develop a Plan" campaign, which encourages adults to develop a plan with teens and young adults to get out of dangerous situations involving drugs or alcohol. It also encourages adults to talk to young people about not using alcohol and drugs, since peer pressure can be challenging and being prepared with a plan can help. The launch of the campaign coincides with prom and graduation season, as well as National Prevention Week.
