ABUSE OF INHALANTS
Parents sitting down to educate their children on the dangers of drug use may miss the fact that their own homes may abound with dangerous and even deadly abusable substances. The vast majority of parents want to protect their children from drug-related harm.
When we think of drug use, the first thing we think of is not inhalants. Some don’t even know what these drugs are. We usually think of heroin, opioid painkillers, cocaine, crack cocaine, meth, alcohol, marijuana, etc.
Red Ribbon Week occurs every October, offering communities a consistent anti-drug message to deliver to youth. It’s also a good time for parents to take a look at how to increase the effectiveness of their anti-drug messages to their children.
