Who We Are

Natural High is a substance abuse prevention nonprofit that inspires and empowers youth to find their natural high and develop the skills and courage to live life well.

Our evidence-backed program is used in all 50 states and makes use of current scientific findings on youth behavior, brain development, social norming, and substance abuse prevention. The latest scientific research speaks to the power of positive example, of engaging influencers to create change in culture, and of course — the power of the natural high. This research shows that when young people find their true passions — those activities that uplift, motivate, and inspire them — and are supported in these choices by family, friends, school, and community, they are more likely to avoid drugs and alcohol. Natural High has dozens of Red Ribbon Week ideas for drug-free week and throughout the year.
