Addiction Information Geared Toward Teens
Above the Influence. This site and many of the Above the Influence ads that you see were originally created as a part of the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign, a program of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. Above the Influence has since transitioned away from federal oversight (as of March 2014), and is now a program of the non-profitPartnership for Drug-Free Kids. The campaign was, and continues to be inspired by what teens have told us about their lives, and how they deal with the influences that shape their decisions.
