Review: A well-established voluntary non-denominational Christian organisation with a history of women advocating for abstinence and the protection of all children and families from exposure to alcohol and other drugs. Products, promotions and campaigns have always, and continue to be, very conservative. The organisation addresses multiple issues including foetal alcohol spectrum disorders, the misuse of prescription and other medications, and the physiological and psychological impact of drugs on the brain. Messages promoted by the organisation have a bias towards the "Just say no" option on a harm reduction continuum.
