Find Support & Answers
We encourage parents to take an active role in their children’s education on substance use prevention. To support you in this endeavor, we have compiled a list of resources that provide information on substance use prevention and education. Additionally, we have included a directory of helplines, support groups, counseling services, and treatment options for families affected by substance use. By working together, we can create a safer, healthier future for our children.
