Inhalant Abuse Prevention Program
March 20, 2002, the Alliance for Consumer Education (ACE) launched its flagship program, the Inhalant Abuse Prevention program, at a press conference in Washington, D.C. The components of ACE’s program include a multi-faceted media campaign and outreach to parents. The program is designed to provide parents with high quality and practical information about Inhalant Abuse so they can include it in their substance abuse discussions with their children.

Ace has developed a message board that is home to over 100,000 visitors a month, discussing first hand experiences with inhalant abuse. Join the message board and experience what our fight is all about. www.messageboard.inhalant.org
