Substance Use & Abuse

It is a good idea to talk to your child about drugs and safety. It is important for your child to know that medications are also drugs and can be very dangerous (including over the counter medications like acetaminophen). It's important to take them just the way the doctor prescribed them. It's also a good idea to talk to her about illegal and legal drugs including alcohol and tobacco. The use of substances by children in the early years is a serious cause for concern. For information about substance use and how to identify if there is a problem, follow the links below.
