About Drug Free Youth DC

This website and the Drug Free Youth DC campaign are about you, your family and community. It is the “go to” place to learn more about Washington, DC information and resources to prevent alcohol, tobacco, other drugs and other youth risky behaviors before they begin. For example, the Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) supports:

  • Prevention Centers – Four DC Prevention Centers that provide community prevention services in every Ward and facilitate local action.
  • Community Education – Awareness campaigns, education resources, training and technical assistance customized for District agency partners.
  • Community Leadership – DC Youth Prevention Leadership Corps that is youth-led and adult supported.
