What We're About
For more than 40 years, drugs and alcohol have been in the news. From “Just Say No” to “This Is Your Brain on Drugs,” the government and educational systems have tried to keep kids substance free. And they have failed. Now, the Treitler Family is on a mission to turn this around through PotatoAllergy.com.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse has determined that children are now abusing drugs and alcohol as young as 12; and for that abuse to be taking place, they must have tried these substances far earlier. So, how do we keep our kids substance-free? How do we teach them the risks of even trying alcohol or drugs – especially if there is a history of addiction in the family?
It all starts – as it did with the Treitler kids – with a conversation.

In a lot of ways that count, the Treitlers are like many other families. A mom and dad and two kids, all of whom love each other, support each other, and enjoy spending time together. But in a very important way, they are also different.
