As a parent, the things you say and do have a tremendous influence on the decisions your child makes – especially when it comes to using drugs or alcohol.

Research shows that kids who learn a lot about the risks of drugs from their parents are up to 50% less likely to use. By talking with your kids about drugs and alcohol, you can help them make better choices and live safer, healthier lives.

Whether you're having trouble finding the time or finding the right words, support and resources are available at TalkNowAZ.com.
