Behind every Success Story is a Drug Free life.

More often than not you will find that behind every success story is a Drug Free Life. That people who are immensely successful have never succumbed to the lure of drugs and alcohol abuse. Even those who have experimented with drugs and alcohol — due to peer pressure — have usually done just that, experimented. These are the people who have never allowed substance abuse to run their lives. Because their lives, and the happiness of the people around them have been too important for them to go down that path.


 A clear mind and clarity of vision.

The only way one can make the most of one’s life is to view the ups and downs of life from the right perspective. One needs to have faith in self, and the strength of mind to take life on no holds barred. And when one has access to resources like the Red Ribbon Week 2013, there are no obstacles on the journey to success in one’s life.

Ever since the origin of Red Ribbon Week, it has been a part of tens of millions of American lives each year for over 25 years. It mobilizes communities across the nation (from October 23rd – the 31st each year) to increase awareness of the importance of leading a drug free life.

Red Ribbon Week activities take place in schools, colleges, neighborhoods and even organizations. These activities involve people of all ages and backgrounds – allowing them to participate in different ways – very simple ways, such as decorations.

Red Ribbon Week Decorations include wristbands, ribbons, buttons, balloons, pens, bookmarks, banners, and so much more. They carry a wide range of messages that encourage people to lead a drug free life. These messages increase awareness of the dangers of substance abuse, which in turn encourages young people to make a pledge to lead lives free of drugs and alcohol – ensuring a future full of hope.
