New School Drug Ed
Information about how to identify and reduce risk factors for early substance use, and strengthen protective factors. 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 rates are growing. Find out what's new and currently trending amongst our adolescents, as well as the latest "hot-of-the-presses" research on risks of the "good 'ole stuff" to developing brains.
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.
