Prevention of Drug Abuse and Alcoholism Begins at Home
Preventing alcohol and drug abuse starts at home. Teach your children early about the effects of substance abuse, to prevent addiction later in life.
No parent wants to see their child suffer from the negative effects of drug addiction, yet many mistakenly believe there is nothing they can do to stop their kids from experimenting with drugs and alcohol. Some parents think this behaviour is normal and acceptable, but the fact is — the earlier teens start using drugs and alcohol the greater their risk for alcoholism and drug abuse. Early substance abuse prevention is one of the best ways to lower the risk for addiction, and this prevention starts at home with families and parents. There are steps parents can take to help their kids and teens steer clear of alcohol and drug abuse.
