Parent Coffee #4Substance Abuse Awareness: What Do You Know?The purpose of substance abuse awareness is to educate adult caregivers about the dangers of specific substances, understand warning signs, recognize symptoms, learn to access support, and to identify additional resources for their own knowledge or to provide support. Early education for our children and youth will help dispel any misconceptions that they may have about commonly abused substances, such as: alcohol, marijuana, tobacco, and medication (over-the-counter and prescribed). The goal of providing awareness opportunities to parents, is to help others understand that although a substance may seem harmless, they have the potential to be dangerous and even deadly.
