Helping teens avoid the dangers of drinking and using other drugs

Alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs can be tempting for teens, and the risks can be serious. The earlier that teens begin using substances, the more likely they are to suffer the consequences—like getting injured, becoming addicted, or making poor choices like having unprotected sex. Teens need their parents’ guidance to make safe and healthy decisions when faced with pressures to drink or use drugs. These online tools and resources give parents valuable skills to talk to their children about the dangers of substance use and keep them safe and substance-free.
