Raising Resilient, Drug-Free Youth 

Talking about substance use and prevention can be stressful and anxiety-provoking, and navigating the drug-use landscape and keeping up with current trends can be chaotic and confusing for parents. This webinar will offer parents information about substance use, explain how drug use impacts brain development, share facts about the most used drugs among youth, and provide parents with tools to keep their children drug-free. 
Use the link below to register for the next webinar on June 20 at 6 p.m. You can either watch the webinar live or watch the recording using the link we’ll send to your email.
