The ROADD (Reduce Our Adolescent Drinking/Drugging & Driving) Program
Educating young people of driving age about the dangers of drinking/drugging and driving is a top priority for SAS. The goal of the program is to reduce the number of substance abuse related driving crashes, violations and deaths. The 6-8 week classroom sessions, led by a ROADD educator, are designed to supplement the health and driver education curriculum offered by each school.

The ROADD program work closely with other SAS programs to educate parents about their role in keeping youth safe.

ROADD also partners with the Westchester Coalition for Drug and Alcohol Free Youth. Together, they have created some excellent Public Service Announcement with strong prevention messages
