PAAC Parents Resource Guide

View/Download Today!

PREVENTION STARTS WITH PARENTS
As a parent you are your child’s first and best protection against alcohol and other
drug use. (Note: We use the term “alcohol and other drugs” to emphasize that
alcohol is a mind-altering drug just like cocaine, marijuana or heroin).  You can provide the positive example, guidance, clear rules and love so necessary to help your children grow up free from the problem of drug use. There are no
guarantees that your child will choose not to use drugs, but parents play a key role
in influencing that decision.  The first step is to become informed yourself. We hope this guide will be the beginning.
