Develop a plan

“The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) 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.”

“OASAS Commissioner Arlene González-Sánchez said, “Alcohol and drugs can have numerous negative consequences for young people, and it is important for them to know these dangers and have a strategy on how to get out of a difficult situation where alcohol and drugs may be present. This campaign will help keep young people safe. Being proactive and discussing the risks surrounding substance use and developing a plan are important ways for adults to take an active role in prevention efforts.”
