The culture of IDFY is one of education, empowerment, and fun! From the week to week chapter meetings in the schools, to the annual Idaho Youth Summit they hold, youth are experiencing an environment where they know they can be themselves, they can share their joys and worries, and they are encouraged on the path of healthy maturity.

Research proves that connectedness is essential to good health, good choices, and good behaviors. IDFY provides quality connectedness for thousands of youth across our great state!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing life changing - life saving - perspectives of kids in a matter of four days at camp. A safe, nuturing environment is cruicial to positive growth and for some of the kiddos who attend IYS, this is their only such experience. Participating in this environment opens their world to know better how they want their life to be, that they have the power to make their life as such, and that they deserve a good life!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want to secure long term funding so that the fantastic staff could focus even more energy and attention on developing and spreading IDFY programming to every corner of Idaho.

Idaho Drug Free Youth made such a positive and significant impact on my life. The people I've met, connections I've made and networks established through this organization is invaluable to me. This life-changing program must continue on throughout Idaho (and should be implement in states throughout the country). Youth of American need the positive and encouraging relationships that these passionate people offer.

Through my involvement in this program I have life-long friends that continue to inspire me to be a better person each and everyday. Your participation, donations and involvement with IDFY will NOT go unappreciated.

I've personally experience the results of this organization in all areas of my life. The organization has impacted the way I communicate, connect and see others. My personal development has been influenced by IDFY in strengthening my ethics and morals. Additionally, occupationally I've acquired skills that will be invaluable to me throughout my life.

If I had to make any changes to this organization I would suggest expanding activities to more central and eastern Idaho. With the office being in CDA, the southern part of the state misses out of some amazing opportunities. More funding could aid is providing these programs for kids all across the state.

I am on the Youth Advisory Board this year and I have been a part of Idaho Drug Free Youth since my freshman year which was the school year of 08-09. I am now a Senior, and live in the Wood River Valley Better known as Sun Valley, ID. My town is heavily infested with Drug use in teens but thanks to the support of this group and great friends I have remained drug and alcohol free. This group has truly changed my life and how I look at things around me. All they do is give and give to the youth with never asking for anything in return. Greatest non-profit around and I am proud to be working with them.

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Isabelle Messica, and I work with the Dr. Waismann. His work is remarkable, he has been treated over 16.000 patients worldwide.
If you could advise families that there is a light after the
tunnel.

Dr Waismann's Mission
In this age of violence, when death is often viewed as a legitimate commodity, when policies on management of famine, terror, diseases and ignorance are determined by political lobbies, when one person’s tragedy becomes another’s evening of entertainment, we must seek grace and find a place where each one of us can still make a difference.
Millions of people worldwide suffer from Opiate Dependency. Too often society condemns them for crimes they are not responsible for, and moral prejudice together with theories about addictive personalities prevent these people from obtaining the medical care they urgently need.
Opiate abuse is widespread with no effective available treatment. Its victims are not viewed as patients, but more usually - as outlaws. Society has pushed them to the gutters and the dark alleys of life, in an attempt to protect itself from them. The solution has been addictive opiate replacements and long term isolation from society. Rehabilitation centers around the world offer sufferers of opiate dependency a treatment that involves a long tormenting withdrawal syndrome which is bad enough but to make it worse, this withdrawal syndrome is followed by biologically-rooted craving.
Failing to provide a better solution, the suffering is justified for its so-called "therapeutic value". This process prevents patients from seeking treatment, and among those who do seek treatment, many drop out. Worse of all, is that the minority that does complete the treatment is likely to relapse and as a result is more reluctant to seek treatment again.
Opiate Dependency requires professional medical care. Unfortunately, it has been treated by social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and law enforcement personnel. However, times have changed, and Opiate Dependency has finally been recognized as a central nervous system disorder caused by continuous opiate intake. Therefore, we must not judge, punish, or morally confront those with Opiate Dependency, but provide them with the appropriate medical attention, they urgently need to reverse the withdrawal and its cravings.
Join us in the fight against human suffering, and witness the birth of a new era.

Angie,

I will be more than happy to assist you for more details.
Best Regards,

Isabelle Messica

I have seen this program change lives from the simple goodness of leadership skills to major life changes that puts a person on the right path they are not my stories to tell but what a privelage to be a part of. I have a young family with my oldest just getting ready to join this year and it is my hope and prayer that it will be there for my 3 year old to be a part of.

I think being able to write a review on local nonprofit organizations is great. I would like to say thank you to Kelsey Wood for sharing this site and volunteering all her time to IDFY! So my experience started back in middle school and went all the way through high school. As one of the drug free youth, I needed this organization. See I was a kid who was surrounded by peers and adults who were looking for there next fix. IDFY was there to help with keeping me busy at school by doing pizza parties or gave incentives to be drug-free. One time in the 8th grade I was able to fly in a small airplane! I was able to go on hiking retreats and camping all because there are amazing people out there that care! Thank you to all that have helped and to those who are planning on helping!

IDFY has inspired many people to remain alcohol and drug free. I am one of the people that they have inspired. They create a fun atmosphere and educate people on the effects of alcohol and drugs on teens. It has made me never want to risk losing the friends that I have made in this program by using drugs and alcohol.

I have seen people I know go through tough times fitting in at school, so they turn to drugs and alcohol. I never really thought like I fit in, but I never tried drugs or alcohol. IDFY saved me from ruining my life, and now I have way more friends than I ever could have imagined that wont pressure me into doing bad things.

I would not change anything about this organization. It is run by very amazing people, and they are doing the best they can to make it fun and educational.
