Above the Influence

Everyone experiences pressure in life, some of it good, some of it bad. The goal of Above the Influence is to help teens stand up to negative pressures or influences. The more aware you are of the influences around you, the better prepared you will be to face them, including the pressure to use alcohol and drugs. By giving you a new perspective and the latest facts, Above the Influence will provide you with the tools you need to make your own smart decisions.
