Choose You is a message for all Nebraskans. This campaign features Nebraskans from around our state telling their stories about why they choose to live substance free. These authentic messages reflect their lived experiences, whether they are choosing to avoid binge drinking, illegal drugs, or improper use of prescription drugs. Explore the videos, images, and resources on this page to hear more about how Nebraskans are living substance free.

To learn more about how to prevent substance use, see the DHHS Prevention and Promotion page​, or a prevention coalition in your local area.


Suicide Prevention. If you or someone you know needs help, please call or text the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline  at 988. Help and hope are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Interpreters are available for non-English speakers.

Find Local Resources. Local resources to you can be found at Nebraska's Network of Care. Resources may include drug disposal, naloxone, local practitioners, mental health programs, and personal health resources.

Opioid Response. Are you or a loved one at risk of an opioid overdose? Narcan® (naloxone) nasal spray can quickly reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

What to do in case of an opioid overdose:
