We all hear about programs like DARE, aimed at prevention of substance abuse. But this church takes a different approach on fighting the problem of substance abuse in our young people.
They plan to educate the parents about the signs and symptoms of drug abuse. They set up a mock bedroom of a young person, chock full of signs of drug use. Educating parents to look for signs could help more kids get treatment before the problem spirals out of control.
Personally, I think education is the key to reducing substance abuse, especially among young people.
