STOP ACT

Sober Truth On Preventing Underage Drinking. 

The STOP Act program was created to strengthen collaboration among the federal, state, local governments, and communities to more effectively reduce alcohol use among youth, with the focus being on student athletes.

MISSION

This mission includes providing timely information to communities about practices and initiatives that are proven to be effective in prevention and reduction of youth alcohol and use and accessibility. The STOP Act program enhances effective local community initiatives to reach our goal. 

GOALS

  • Reduce alcohol availability and access.
  • Reduce further over concentration of alcohol outlets.
  • Reduce normalization while highlighting associated risks.
  • Reduce student athlete drinking rates. 

WHY STUDENT ATHLETES

Student athletes are more prone to participate in underage drinking especially with their teams. We want student athletes to make informed decisions regarding alcohol use. As a community we can tackle this problem from all angles to ensure we reach our common goals. Partner with us and let's STOP underage drinking .
