SADD supports the growth and development of chapters primarily in middle and high schools across the country through programming and leadership training and promotes awareness of youth issues to the general public. 
SADD participates in regional and national forums and coalitions focused on issues related to its mission: underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence and suicide, and other destructive decisions.
SADD also supports a network of state coordinators funded through government or charitable organizations to help deliver quality education and prevention materials and programming. These state coordinators work closely with the SADD advisors in their local networks to ensure program success.
Independent studies have shown that students in schools with an established SADD chapter are more aware of and informed about the risks of underage drinking, other drug use, and impaired driving. Students in schools with a SADD chapter are also more likely to hold attitudes reflecting positive reasons not to use alcohol.

For 30 years, SADD has been committed to empowering young people to lead education and prevention initiatives within their schools and communities. Founded as Students Against Driving Drunk in 1981 in Wayland, Massachusetts, SADD has grown to become the nation''s leading peer-to-peer youth education, prevention, and activism organization with nearly 10,000 chapters in middle schools, high schools, and colleges. In 1997, in response to requests from SADD students themselves, SADD expanded its mission and name and now sponsors chapters called Students Against Destructive Decisions. SADD continues to endorse a firm ''No Use'' message related to the use of alcohol and other drugs. With its expanded focus, SADD now highlights prevention of all destructive behaviors and attitudes that are harmful to young people, including underage drinking, substance abuse, risky and impaired driving, teen violence and suicide.
