I don’t drink, don’t smoke, don’t do drugs, and have never have (I also avoid caffeine and can’t remember the last time that I took an aspirin). This makes me a bit unusual among my peers, so I often have people ask me why I am the way I am. I don’t have a good explanation. It’s not really a religious thing or a family thing—it’s more that I want to be healthy and be able to focus 100% on the things that I like to do. Or maybe D.A.R.E. worked really well on me. Regardless, I’m sure the folks at The Partnership at Drugfree.org would love to figure me out so that they can replicate it. They are a New York, NY based non-profit organization “that helps parents prevent, intervene in and find treatment for drug and alcohol use by their children.” While many people are skeptical of the anti-drug movement in general, there’s no doubt that substance abuse continues to be a major public health problem in our country.
I’ve seen friends lose parents to alcoholism, parents lose kids to drugs, and friends lose control of their lives because of addiction. And these were all people who had access to the best resources available for treating their problems. The truth is that the best way to fight substance abuse is to keep people from ever using in the first place (and if they do start, to stop them while they’re still young). That’s why The Partnership at Drugfree.org began in the mid-80s when “a small group of advertising professionals discussed how to best use their talents to address the nation’s drug problem” and thought “if advertising could be used to sell products, couldn’t it be used to unsell them as well?” Over the years The Partnership’s mission has evolved, and now they devote significant resources to giving “hope and help to the parents of the 11 million teens and young adults who need help with drugs and alcohol.” They’ve identified parents as the “key leverage point,” and now much of what they do is focused on working with parents. If drugfree has a special meaning to you, then you should consider Careers at The Partnership at Drugfree.org. However, for job postings you’ll want to check the organization’s Idealist page. Right now they’re looking for a Special Event and Major Gift Manager and Parent Support Specialists. Neither job is explicitly entry level, but they’re still both worth checking out.
