parents you matterThis is a sobering fact that parents need to stop being in denial about.

We have good kids making bad decisions.

Parents Matter:

  • 1 in 4 kids who have tried alcohol had their first drink at age 12 or younger
  • Every day, more than 4,000 teenagers try an illicit drug for the first time
  • Kids who learn about the risks of substance abuse at home are significantly less likely to use. Parents and other caring adults do matter and can make a difference.

These statistics are why it’s imperative you build a relationship of trust and open your lines of communication with your child and especially a teenager. We know it’s not easy, however it’s necessary.

In today’s fast-paced society, parents may have to schedule time with their teens – don’t skip those family meals, make it a priority. If not every night, at least several times a week. Studies have proven that having meals together can reduce risky behavior in adolescences.

If you suspect your teen is using drugs and your conversations have gone on deaf ears, turn to local counseling. If you are still struggling, please contact us for information on residential therapy.
