Parents: You Matter! is a community education program that engages parents through an awareness-building presentation delivered by Law Enforcement and Prevention Professionals.  The presentation provides parents and other caring adults with valuable insights into why kids use, how parents can start the dialogue, and what steps to take if they suspect or know their child is using. It underscores the need for parents to educate themselves about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, and to be the go-to source when their children have questions.

  • The average age of first use is 13 years old
  • Every day 4,000 teens try an illicit drug for the first time
  • Every day 2,500 teens abuse a prescription drug for the first time

The good news is that parents – and other caring adults – do matter, and can make a difference.  Parents: You Matter! increases parents’ understanding and confidence in prevention and addressing drug and alcohol issues.  The presentation is tailored to meet specific audience needs, including local data, resources, and places to get help.
