Building a Drug-Free Generation: RIZE Prevention

At RIZE, we understand that the key to ending teen drug use and addiction lies in a combination of effective drug prevention and unwavering support. Our mission is to equip teens with the knowledge, skills, and resilience they need to grow up drug-free, ensuring a brighter and healthier future.


The Heart Problem

Our young generation, filled with potential and promise, is struggling with feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, and stress. For this reason, we’ve realized we’re not battling solely substance abuse; we’re confronting a heart and hope problem. It’s time to change the conversation. Teenagers resort to self-medication to seek balance, purpose, and relief. Destructive self-medication isn’t a harmless temporary fix; it’s poisoning developing minds and compromising their potential for healthy maturity. Our teens deserve better, and so do their futures. 


The Heart Solution

We firmly believe that early prevention programs are the most powerful weapon against this crisis – programs built on education, timely intervention, and loving encouragement and validation. Our approach is rooted in the belief that a strong support system, especially parents, can be the shield that protects our teens. We’re not just saving lives; we’re also saving money by preventing future crises before they even begin.
