Background

About Us

  

The Prevention Minute was established by a dedicated group of parents looking to gain a better understanding of their community’s rapidly evolving illicit drug and alcohol culture.  Armed with a small grant from the Indiana Department of Education, these individuals set forth to design a platform that would provide local communities, like theirs, with reliable, up-to-date news and information.



 

 

The Substance Abuse Epidemic

  

It's no secret, our Country’s dealing with some serious substance abuse related issues, most notably Prescription Opioids and Heroin.  Today, more people in the U.S. now die from opioid related overdoses than traffic accidents or homicides. As alarming as that is, prescription drug abuse is only one of more than a dozen drug and alcohol related issues plaguing our communities. From marijuana legalization, to the explosion of e-cigarettes and vaping, the need for accurate up-to-date news and information has never been greater.

Our Solution

  

The advent of social media, online video, and mobile apps have transformed the way we consume information. The Prevention Minute was designed to take advantage of this shift, using a short-form video format as a means of delivering content that’s easy for viewers to access, view, and share.  

The Prevention Minute offers marketing opportunities to accommodate any size campaign. The Prevention Minute strategically partners with Local, State, and National organizations and agencies that have strong social media presence. Our location-based Ad Units offer precise audience targeting, advanced metrics, and branded content, everything your company needs to optimize your ad dollars.
