We Are a Movement That Recognizes Fear and Facilitates Connections

Why was StopB4UStart created? Sadly, drugs & alcohol have a stranglehold on millions of young people today worldwide, stripping away their chance for a stable, happy and productive life. We want to change that and give the youth the very best chance to a great life by reaching them before there’s a problem.

A national study done by NCADD revealed that more teens are dying from drug overdoses than people dying from motor vehicle accidents per year. There are 2.5 million alcohol-related deaths worldwide annually—320,000 of those being young people ages 15-29 years of age. Something needs to be done.
