For a free, anonymous ride home or to volunteer, call +1 (907)353-4145
Soldiers Against Drunk Driving (SADD) is a volunteer based program that promotes sound judgment by providing an additional alternative to eliminating DUI’s amongst our ranks. SADD’s mission is a no-questions asked platform where volunteer designated drivers are on call between 11 p.m. – 4 a.m. Friday-Saturday and holiday weekends, with last call at 3 a.m. SADD volunteers don’t wear a formal uniform to ensure maximum comfort for inebriated Service members. The program is completely confidential, no information of any patrons is collected or sent to chain of command. We exercise anonymity when you utilize our program.
Our program is free of charge to use for anyone on Fort Wainwright, and no information is collected and sent to anyone’s chain of command. The SADD vans will pick up Service members and/or their spouse provided they have a valid military identification card within the normal operating hours. We will not shuttle you to another bar, drive thrus, or any other location. Our goal is ensure your safe return from off/on-post establishments to your living quarters, regardless if you have on-post housing or off-post housing. For more information contact the SADD Coordinator at the number above.
