Narconon Helps Parents Keep Kids Drug and Alcohol-Free with New Guidelines that Support National Prevention Week
Date:5/16/2013

(PRWEB) May 16, 2013

Just in time for National Prevention Week sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Narconon International has released the Safe Summer Guide for parents. As more young people begin using drugs or alcohol over the summer, Narconon is offering parents specific recommendations on how they can prevent children from getting into substance abuse.

“We felt that it would make a parent's job easier if he or she had a guide to effective anti-drug, pro-family actions to take,” said Clark Carr, president of Narconon International. Narconon is an international network of drug rehabilitation and prevention organizations with offices on six continents. “By just starting with the first suggestion offered in this guide and working their way down to number ten, parents can have a much easier time taking a strong role in preventing substance abuse and maybe even a future addiction.”

It is appropriate that National Prevention Week is scheduled right before school lets out, as the summer break traditionally means higher numbers of young people starting to abuse drugs or alcohol, as reported by SAMHSA. It also seems that at the beginning of every summer, new movies are released about young people getting drug and high and then destroying property. Parents have their hands full trying to offset these and other media influences that portray drinking, drug use and destructive behavior as “fun.” But if parents don't do their best, they may be facing the injury, arrest or even death of their teenaged or young adult children.

On March 2, 2012, the extreme-teen-party movie Project X hit theaters, and by April, copycat parties had resulted in extensive property damage and injuries in Texas, Missouri, California, Utah, Florida, and other states. One party in Texas even resulted in the death of a party-goer. Promotions for these parties usually go out via Twitter,
