What Is Reality Tour?

Your community needs an effective and sustainable drug prevention program now. We unite communities to reduce risk factors for youth substance abuse by re-purposing resources you already have.

Parents are the most powerful prevention tool, and they need the support of their communities. The Reality Tour® program brings parents, students, schools, local law enforcement and community volunteers to the table. Together, they create one powerful experience that can influence conversations and choices for years to come.

Sustainable and affordable, Reality Tour allows teens the opportunity to address peer pressure and mental health concerns unique to their community. Evidence-based program update help us incorporate current prevention and health care research.

When Reality Tour’s founder Norma Norris asked her son how he managed to not get caught up in drugs, he said, “I could always see beyond the next 10 minutes.” This is the answer that inspired Reality Tour.
