“Above the Influence” is a program of the White House office of National Drug Control Policy. The “Above the Influence” campaign has been reaching teens for more than seven years through television, print, radio, and online media. ATI’s efforts in local communities focus on connecting directly with teens and local youth-serving organizations to deliver messages, activities, and support to help the Nation’s youth stay “above the influence” of drugs, alcohol, and other risky behaviors. Multiple scientific findings indicate that teens that have increased exposure to and engagement with the “Above the Influence” campaign have stronger anti-drug beliefs and is significantly associated with reduced drug usage.
