Why Should I Take Care of Myself if My Child is the One with the Addiction?
Self-care is important for a parent helping their child struggling with drugs. As one parent put it, “We became as sick as he was just trying to save him.”
"We want parents to be prepared to have important conversations with their child, just as they would with any other substance."

We’ve created a vaping guide for parents to help you understand what vaping is, its appeal to youth and what research has to say about both the risks and unknowns. We’ve also identified some signs to look for and what to do if you are concerned that your child may try or actually is vaping, and offer some advice on what to say when talking with your child about vaping.
This comprehensive resource will explain the culture of vaping, what the current research says, and how to have difficult conversations about vaping or juuling with your child.
