PROTECT KIDS FROM FENTANYL POISONING:
WATCH THIS SHORT FILM WITH YOUR KID
Last year, 100K+ people died from drug overdoses driven by fentanyl, and the fastest growing group is under age 19. Fentanyl poisoning truly is the most important conversation you need to have with your kids right now.

There is no national programming
in schools to teach youth about
drug and alcohol abuse.
Our evidence-based program is used in all 50 states and makes use of current scientific findings on youth behavior, brain development, social norming, and substance abuse prevention. The latest scientific research speaks to the power of positive example, of engaging influencers to create change in culture, and of course — the power of the natural high. This research shows that when young people find their true passions — those activities that uplift, motivate, and inspire them — and are supported in these choices by family, friends, school, and community, they are more likely to avoid drugs and alcohol.
How Natural High Works
Positive stories from key influencers have a powerful part to play in helping young people make the right choices. Natural High shares these stories via short, free videos for educators to use in the classroom and for parents to watch with their kids at home.
Tools for Effective Engagement
Our curriculum includes activities that directly engage young people through two-way communication and that have a lifespan beyond the initial viewing of a video or hearing of a story. Each piece of content we offer has relevant questions and discussion topics associated with it.
Positive Alternative to
Drugs & Alcohol
When it comes to issues around substance abuse, kids need to be engaged in a positive way, to be steered towards that which inspires them rather than simply deterred. Natural High is dedicated to bringing the power of positive example to young people’s lives by delivering stories that help kids find their own ‘natural highs’ and that give them the skills to live life well.
Skills to Live
It is not any one thing but rather a combination of factors that ultimately leads young people to have the courage to avoid drug and alcohol abuse. Our curriculum focuses on these protective factors, giving young people a well-rounded skill set that is rooted in the latest research on drug prevention.
