About Us

We have seen addiction destroy the lives of our friends and family. We dedicate this to them. If they understood the risks of addiction in high school, their lives might be different today. We established Wait 21 to help educate our friends on the science of addiction and how we can reduce our risk. Join us in fighting addiction by donating today!


This site, its images, and posters were created in collaboration with students of Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. If you would like digital copies of our awesome posters to hang in your schools, contact us via the form on the left.

We get our information and statistics from top research institutions and government organizations. If you need more information or help, please visit these links.
