Learn how to start and maintain open dialogue with your kids about drugs and alcohol, and help them resist peer pressure. Including tips on responding to substance experimentation or problematic use. 

Substances of abuse are getting stronger and more dangerous, use is getting younger and youth addiction and overdose rates are growing.

As parents, we can feel like we are swimming upstream in an increasingly complex, dangerous, and addictive world. Gain empowering information and skills to help your kids develop an inner compass that will steer them healthily through self-destructive options of adolescence into a thriving young adulthood. 

Parents and students in 5th-12th grades come together for this interactive workshop to gain shared language and understanding about youth drug and alcohol abuse, greater empathy for each other, and agreements on how to maintain mutual trust through middle and high school.
