Parents and Prevention

It is well documented that parents play the most vital role in whether or not their children abuse drugs or alcohol. But many parents are ill-informed about the nature of substance abuse and how it impacts their children.

Many parents:

  • Believe that alcohol/drug abuse is a national problem, but may be unaware their own children are at risk.
  • May be unaware their own children are exposed to drugs/alcohol at an early age.
  • May have little information about drugs and their effects.
  • May find it difficult to talk to their children about drugs.
  • May think their children don’t have the money for drugs.
  • May accept limited drug use among adults.
  • Usually abstain from drug or excessive alcohol use.
  • Believe parents should take the lead in preventing drug use by their own children.
