If you have general questions about SADD, you can always send questions to info@sadd.org or call 1-877-SADD-INC (877-723-3462).  For faster service, however, it’s best if you find the particular area you’re interested in from the list below, which contains contact information and/or links to pages on this site that will likely answer your questions in full.


Find a Local SADD Chapter
With nearly 10,000 chapters and the list in constant flux, we do not publicly list SADD chapters on our website. To find a local chapter, please determine if your state has a SADD state coordinator, and if so, contact them directly – click here to see a listing of states with coordinators. If you are in a state without a coordinator, please contact SADD’s Field Services Department at fieldservices@sadd.org or 1-877-SADD-INC, ext. 223 to find a local chapter. To serve you better, we ask that you please tell us WHY you are looking for a local SADD chapter. 

Please note that most chapters are school-based and function as school clubs, meaning that students from outside the school generally cannot join the chapter or participate in its activities, no more than they could join another school’s sports teams or student council.  Additionally, adult volunteers are usually limited to parents with a child in the school.  If there is not a SADD Chapter in your school, starting one is easy and free – click here to learn more. SADD is generally not a good option for students required to do community service as part of a court case.

This valuable information allows us to share important news and opportunities with you. It also gives us critical data about the SADD network that helps us draw attention to the issues we care about and support our requests for funding.
