Panaptic | Comprehensive Substance Use Prevention Skip to the content

Panaptic provides a compassionate, engaging, and evidence-based substance use prevention curriculum that shifts perspectives in your community.

Engage your community

Our community-based approach to substance use prevention prioritizes education and connection to deepen trust and shift perspectives.

Substance use prevention works when teens and adults feel supported, understood, and engaged in learning. Instead of imposing outdated and rigid boundaries like “Just Say No,” we engage communities in paradigm-shifting conversations, helping learners truly understand why “No” might be something they want to say in the first place.

“I liked how the course didn’t just say no and tell us to avoid marijuana. It talked about the research and helped us to learn about the risks ourselves so that we could make a healthy choice.


I highly recommend this program to any educator looking to upgrade their health curriculum.”

Jon Wallet, PE Teacher, Rutland Middle School
