for-parentsFor Parents

Being a parent is no easy task, especially in this high-tech world. Information is only a few finger swipes away and can easily lead to mixed messages. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has recognized the strong influence parents and mentors can have on a child’s attitude and behaviors. Talking to your children about substance abuse isn’t easy, but it is crucial. Even an occasional, short talk about it can help guide youth onto a healthier path. In our parent resources section you can find information on commonly used illegal drugs and links to our local and national partners.
