Know the Truth Prevention

Evidence-Based Prevention Model

Since 2006, the Know the Truth ™ Prevention Program (KTT) has educated more than 550,000 students in over 300 schools across the state of Minnesota. Our presentations are developed in response to real-time data provided to us by the students. Utilizing a peer to peer approach, our presenters share the real life consequences of substance use in a way that deters students from making the choice to use. This approach in addition to other evidence-informed practices helps to both prevent and decrease current youth substance. In a recent student survey, 78% of students stated that they will quit using or use less after hearing the KTT presentation. We offer a full continuum of prevention services that extends beyond the classroom, as we recognize the need for community based prevention efforts that create sustainable change.
