Debbie Berndt
Director of Substance-Free Athletics

Debbie Berndt is the Director of Substance Free Athletics and sits on the board of several national prevention organizations all with missions to reduce substance use among youth. Debbie has written about drug research and youth prevention for years and has spoken to over ten thousand parents and teens since early 2017 – when she realized that neither parents nor teens understood much about today’s marijuana, and almost nothing about how substances impact adolescent brain development. SAMHSA considers her a technical expert in marijuana youth prevention and is grateful to share important information that can have lifelong impact on health and well-being.  substance-free-athletics.org
