The SAVE A STAR Drug Awareness Foundation website provides helpful information and resources for drug users, communities and educators, children and young people who may be faced with the temptations of drug use, and parents and loved ones who seek a better understanding of drugs.

This website addresses many different aspects of drugs in America today, and how they impact the lives of drug users and those who care for their welfare. The information provided has been written and gathered from various sources, and in no way should serve as the final word or a recommendation on how you might deal with a personal drug problem, for yourself or a loved one.
