With the prevalence of drug use in our society today, parents and guardians need to take a proactive stance when addressing this issue with their children. It is never too early to start talking with your child about the consequences of using drugs and alcohol, and there are many resources to assist you with this. While parental involvement plays a critical role in drug abuse prevention, schools and communities can also support this endeavor. Although prevention is the key in supporting our youth today, early intervention once a problem is discovered is also extremely important.
As parents and other concerned persons, you are not alone in learning how to deal with this societal issue. In collaboration with the Pittsford School Community Partnership, Rush-Henrietta has created a Parent Prevention Guide.
