Try to Spot Issues Early

Take Action to Help Your Child

  • Doing Your Prep Work
    Prepare for difficult conversations ahead and lay the groundwork for positive outcomes.
  • Suggesting Treatment
    Your child may be more willing to get help than you think. Learn how to listen for the right moments to start a productive conversation.
  • Safegaurd Against Overdose
    If your child is using heroin or abusing prescription pain medication, get Naloxone and know how to use it.
  • Navigating The Treatment System
    Treatment isn’t one-size-fits-all. Take time to understand what’s available and what to consider when selecting a provider or program.
