Educating, Inspiring, Empowering. 


Below is a list of resources that align with the work of the Coalition for Drug-Free Youth.

Teen Link

Teen Link is here to help you with any issue, no matter how big or small. If you need support with these issues or anything else in your life, please call us any evening between 6-10PM at: 1-866-TEENLINK (833-6546).


Safe Place

If you need a place to stay, you can go to any Safe Place site and say, "I need a safe place." The staff will arrange for you to be met by a youth counselor who can help you find shelter or other services. You can also call Safe Place directly at 1 (800) 422-TEEN.


Most Steer Clear

"Most Steer Clear" was created to promote the fact that most young adults in King County make positive choices. 77% don’t use marijuana regularly and 89% don’t drive under the influence of marijuana.


Washington Recovery Help Line

The Washington Recovery Help Line provides support to youth across Washington State who have questions or concerns about substance abuse, problem gambling, or mental health issues. Visit the Washington Recovery Help Line’s website.



YouthCare offers shelter and housing options for youth ages 12-24, as well as education, job training, case management and more. Click here to learn more about our shelter, housing, employment, and education programs for young people.


Talk. They Hear You.

The “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign aims to reduce underage drinking and substance use among youths under the age of 21 by providing parents and caregivers with the information and resources they need to address alcohol and drug use with their children early.


Start Talking Now is funded by the Washington State Health Care Authority and is updated and maintained by the Washington Healthy Youth (WHY) Coalition. The WHY Coalition's mission is to prevent and reduce underage alcohol and marijuana use. The WHY Coalition is a partnership of Washington State government agencies and organizations representing traffic safety, law enforcement, faith-based groups, education, public health, policy and rulemaking, and social services.
