National Red Ribbon Week

Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free

Richland County Comes Together - Respect Your Community

Recently, Quest Diagnostics put out a stunning report of how much drug abuse has increased in the workplace. In one year, the statistics have gone from 4.7% to 9.3%. American workers are increasingly testing positive for workforce drug use across almost all workforce categories. Normally the rise has been in prescription drug positivity rates, but now, it seems, illicit drug use is on the rise.

Normally, Red Ribbon Week reaches out to the schools in every area across the country. This time, we are working to reach everyone in the Richland County community during Red Ribbon Week, to bring education to our students, parents and to the community we live in.

Red Ribbon Campaign

The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program, sponsored by the National Family Partnership. NFP, formerly the National Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth, was established as a grassroots, non-profit organization in 1980 by a handful of concerned and determined parents who were convinced they should begin to play a leadership role in drug prevention. Since its founding 30 years ago, NFP has devoted its efforts to the well-being of the youth. Today, NFP is a national leader in drug prevention education and advocacy. Their mission is to lead and support our nation's families and communities in nurturing the full potential of healthy, drug-free youth.

The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign (Red Ribbon Week) is to present a unified and visible commitment toward the creation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA.
