Wristbands To Support Drug Abuse Prevention

Keeping kids off drugs and curbing drug abuse is a major goal of communities and law enforcement agencies across the country. Drug abuse is known to contribute to crime and homelessness, and prevention is just as important as helping people who are already addicts.

Wristbands for Drug Abuse Awareness Campaigns

One strategy for preventing drug abuse is to launch awareness campaigns where the dangers of drug use are made clear. Common slogans are “Not Even Once” and “Proud to Be Drug-Free”. There are multiple months of the year when drug abuse prevention is a focus. September is known as Recovery Month, Red Ribbon Week is at the end of October, and National Substance Abuse Prevention Month is all of October. Drug abuse prevention wristbands can be used at any of these times to provide information and support for young people and anyone struggling with a drug problem.

Why is Drug Abuse Prevention Important?

Looking at facts from www.dosomething.org, it’s clear why so many drug abuse prevention campaigns focus on teenagers. Here are a few to consider:

  • Teens whose parents talk to them regularly about the dangers of drugs are 42 percent less likely to use drugs than those whose parents don't. However, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.
  • By the 8th grade, 29.5 percent of adolescents have consumed alcohol, 15.5 percent have smoked cigarettes, and 15 percent have used marijuana.
  • More than 60 percent of teens said that drugs were sold, used, or kept at their school.
  • 1 in 9 high school seniors has tried Spice/K2 (synthetic marijuana).
  • Young people who drink alcohol are 50 times more likely to use cocaine than teens who never drink.
  • About 64 percent of teens surveyed who have abused pain relievers say they got them from friends or relatives.
  • Around 28 percent of teens know a friend or classmate who has used ecstasy, with 17 percent knowing more than one user.

 Customize Your Drug Abuse Prevention Wristbands

If you make your drug abuse prevention bracelets unique, people will be more likely to wear them and share them! Here are some creative ways to customize your drug abuse prevention bands:

  • Instead of standard size bracelets, order slap bands that snap to your wrist and fit snugly in place.
  • Order thin quarter-inch or thick one-inch bands to really make your drug abuse prevention awareness campaign stand out.
  • Use a color combination, such as segmented or swirled colors. Red and purple are often used in relation to drug abuse prevention.
  • Add glitters.
  • Add a glow-in-the-dark effect, especially for events held at night.
  • Add custom artwork, or select clipart from our extensive library.
