What is a SADD Chapter?
A SADD Chapter is a group of students with an adult advisor. Most SADD chapters are in middle and high schools and function as school clubs. Some Chapters are community-based and are hosted at community centers, within a church youth group, as part of a community coalition, or in facility based youth programs.

The Philosophy of SADD

SADD was founded on the simple philosophy that young people, empowered to help each other, are the most effective force in prevention.  For more than a quarter-century, SADD has been recognized as a national leader in alcohol and drug-education and prevention. What began as a small-town, grass-roots response to the tragedy of two teenage students quickly grew to become a nationwide organization fueled by millions of young people across the country and around the world. 

Through the efforts of SADD and similar organizations and with changes in government policy and law, the number of teen alcohol related traffic crashes has been reduced by almost 60%. SADD's "Contract for Life" has become part of the vernacular. At the same time, the world of teenagers has become more complex, and substance abuse, violence, HIV/AIDS, and suicide are also threats to teens' well being. With its expansion of focus to include other destructive decisions, SADD is the premiere youth-based education and prevention organization in America and maintains the ability to play a leading role in effective, evidence-based prevention programming.
