How to Talk With Your Kids About Drugs: Let’s Get Started
Talking with your teen about marijuana does not have to be awkward and uncomfortable. Parenting expert, Heather Senior, LCSW, explains how to set the stage to have a respectful, open conversation with your teen about pot, alcohol or any drug.
The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is dedicated to reducing substance abuse among adolescents by supporting families and engaging with teens. We develop public education campaigns that drive awareness of teen substance abuse, and lead teen-targeted efforts that inspire young people to make positive decisions to stay healthy and avoid drugs and alcohol.
On our website, drugfree.org, and through our toll-free helpline (1-855-DRUGFREE), we provide families with direct support and guidance to help them address teen substance abuse. We build healthy communities, advocating for great access to adolescent treatment and funding for youth prevention programs.
As a national nonprofit, we depend on donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and the public sector and are thankful to SAG-AFTRA and the advertising and media industries for their ongoing generosity.
We are proud to receive a Four-Star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities, as well as a National Accredited Charity Seal from The Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.
