Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Teen Peers is comprised of teens trained to teach others about HIV/AIDS, risky behaviors, and making good decisions. There are SADD Teen Peers groups in Elcho, White Lake and Antigo. If you know someone in Grade 9-12, who would like to be trained, please contact the Langlade County Health Department.
Originally, the mission of the SADD chapter was to help young people say “No” to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students have told us that positive peer pressure, role modeling and environmental strategies can prevent other destructive decisions and set a healthier, safer course for their lives. And that is why SADD has become a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide.
To provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, and other destructive decisions.
