Missouri Safe and Sober is a free, research-based program that educates students on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. 

Students watch a video designed to show the consequences of underage drinking. Students are then asked to sign a pledge to remain safe and sober. Positive peer pressure and support from parents and teachers holds students accountable and creates a culture of change within each school.

Missouri Safe and Sober also provides parents with information about the dangers of underage drinking, as well as tips on setting limits and expectations for their teen about avoiding drugs and alcohol.

Our school chose to participate in Safe and Sober as a new, fresh way of educating our students on the dangers of underage drinking. The program utilized real-life testimonies from students in their own age group, which we felt would hit home more than just listening to adults tell them what they should be doing. — Jade Wright, STUCO Advisor at Bucklin R-2 High School
We showed the video in groups. After the first group watched it, the news of how great the video spread like wildfire and everyone was wanting to watch it. No student hesitated to sign the agreement. The thermometer was placed on the high school office door so everyone could see it. The students got to sign their names on it as well after they filled out the pledge cards. I think the program is awesome and has a huge impact on students. We will continue to do it in the future. — Lana Hager, Teacher at Van Buren High School
This is the second year we have participated in the Safe and Sober program and we have found that the materials and the presentation are well done and well received by a teenage audience. All teens have heard about the dangers of drinking and driving, but this presentation seems make the issue much more relevant with our students. — Meredith Marsh, Principal at Saint Paul Lutheran School
