We know that the most effective way to reduce substance abuse is to prevent addition before it starts. That’s why drug prevention efforts, such as the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign and Drug-Free Communities Support Program, are important tools in our goal to reduce drug use and its consequences. Sometimes prevention can be as simple as spending time with your kids over a home-cooked meal.
To help spread this message, we are please to join The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse’s in celebrating Family Day. The purpose of the day is to encourage parents to spend time – through family dinners – with their kids, talk to them about their friends, interests, and the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Prevention is the most cost-effective, common-sense approach to promoting safe and healthy communities. Get involved today!
