The DRA Program's main purpose is to prevent at-risk youth from choosing to run away by presenting them alternatives to running away before they choose to act.
In America, youth are constantly taught tobacco and alcohol prevention, but rarely provided with the knowledge they need to make important decisions about their home lives. The DRA Program provides a presentation right in the classroom to help educate youth in how to make decisions and the tools available to positively affect their lives.
