Is There a Problem?

Know the signs to look for, and understand that when it comes to teen or young adult drug and alcohol use, it’s never too early to speak up.

Do you think your child may be using drugs? If so, have you noticed any of these changes or warning signs?

Is it "Just Experimenting?"

Is your child using drugs? Use these tips to prepare for the conversation ahead, and lay the foundation for more positive outcomes.
