October 18th is National “Above the Influence Day”

The month of October has been named by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) as National Substance Abuse Prevention Month. And on October 18, 2012, the first ever National Above the Influence Day will be celebrated.

October 18th will be “an opportunity for youth and local youth-serving partners to demonstrate the power of staying above the negative influences that can lead to substance use.” Coalitions will be able to hold event and activities that reinforce the Above the Influence campaign.

To learn more on how you can hold event and activities for National Above the Influence Day in your community, there is an opportunity for you to attend an hour-long training and instruction webinar on Thursday, September 6th at 1pm ET. Can’t make it on the 6th? There will be another webinar on Wednesday, September 12th at 1pm ET.
