This year marks the 25th observance of Red Ribbon Week [Oct 23 -31] to raise awareness in communities about what we can all do to prevent drug abuse before it starts.

This year, Prevention First, the Illinois Drug Education Alliance (IDEA), Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and the Chicago Region office of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) encourage you to "Paint Illinois Red" as part of the national 25th year observance, "Paint the Nation Red."
