Being Adept


Empowering Youth & Parents

The mission of Being Adept is to prevent alcohol and drug abuse among adolescents through a research and science school-based curriculum that empowers youth and their parents to make informed, healthy choices.

A Tailored Curriculum

Our multi-lesson, school based curriculum validates the student experience while providing youth with evidence-based tools to turn down drugs and alcohol on their own.  We make saying no to drugs and alcohol their choice rather than our demand.

The curriculum is evidence based with significantly positive results on the intervention since 2011. It incorporates evidence based strategies such as motivational interviewing and social norms theory.
