Above the Influence

 

ATI LOGO2

The goal of Above the Influence is to help teens stand up to negative pressures, or influences. The more aware you are of the influences around you, the better prepared you will be to face them, including the pressure to use drugs and alcohol. This site will not tell you how to live your life, but will offer you another perspective and the latest facts. You need to make your own smart decisions.
