Preventing youth substance use is not just a city problem, a public school problem, a single parent household problem, this is a community problem. The Know the Truth™ Prevention Program is committed to bringing the community together to engage, invest, educate and empower teens towards a healthy future


Each year we partner with attorneys, sheriffs, police officers, county officials, school administration and community resources to bring our A Night to Know the Truth adult presentations to communities across Minnesota. Our free events are a unique opportunity for parents, teachers and concerned individuals to hear from experts in the field of prevention and youth substance use.


The more we learn about youth substance use the more equipped we are as adults to react to their use in responsible and helpful ways. At A Night to Know the Truth, attendees can expect to receive updated and evidence based information on:


  • Current drug trends and warning signs

  • Ways to intervene and when it's necessary

  • Updates from local law enforcement and school administration

  • How to get connected with other local organizations who offer services for treatment & mental health

  • Tools to creating a healthy conversation about drugs and alcohol

From Statistics to Solutions is an annual conference hosted by the Know the Truth™ Prevention Program and Our Young Addicts. This conference is for professionals who want to understand more about youth substance use and the ways each individual can leverage their positions to make an impact on the next generation. 


We gather qualified speakers from a range of different fields; including medical, prevention, legal, law enforcement, pharmaceutical, legislative, treatment and education who are involved in combating youth substance use. The conference consists of four different panel discussions, guest keynote speaker, multiple networking opportunities, the latest drug trends and solutions, 30 community resources tables and over 400 attendees.



The Know the Truth™ Prevention Program is committed making an impact inside and outside the classroom. Each school we work with has the opportunity to host a parent event where parents are invited to learn more about drug trends and data specific to their school. In each school we visit our presenters collect student surveys. We care about getting this valuable information back to the people who are with the students the most. At our parent events we cover topics like what to look for, warning signs, how to talk to your teen about substance use and connections to resources and treatment options. The truth is, the more we know the more we can help!

The Know the Truth™ Prevention Program provides evidence-based prevention education tailored to the specific needs of each school. We inform the younger generation about the choices they have to fight against substance use, and to power through stereotypes and invest in their future. We promise to educate and empower youth, parents and educators to take a stand against substance use.
