Time To Act: http://www.timetoact.drugfree.org/
It can be a scary time when you suspect or discover your child is drinking or using drugs. Even the savviest of parents can feel lost and unsure of what to do. The Partnership for a Drug Free America has launched Time To Act, a new, first-of-its-kind resource to help parents spot signs and symptoms, have productive conversations with their teens, and find outside help if they need it. Time To Act was created to ensure that every parent has free access, on their own terms, to the most current research-based information on how to help their child – and their family – take the next steps. The Partnership, and CADY, believes that no parent should go through this alone, without guidance from experts and other parents.
