New! How Parents Can Fight Heroin Abuse with Help from Narconon
Date:8/12/2013

(PRWEB) August 12, 2013

Many American families may think that heroin will never touch their families. But too many families find out they were wrong. With prescription drug abuse so widespread and heroin being chemically so similar to prescription painkillers, heroin and its consequent savage addiction may visit families who were sure it could never happen to them. To help parents wall this catastrophe off from breaching the walls of their home, Narconon International provides new educational materials for parents.

It is understandable that most parents have a difficult time talking to their children about drug use and abuse. Unless a parent has tried these drugs himself in his younger years, it is hard to know exactly how to explain the dangers. This booklet overcomes these barriers.

These materials familiarize parents with the path many young people may take to arrive at the use of heroin. And just to make it perfectly clear "use" of heroin is "abuse' of heroin -- there is no social "use" that precedes "abuse." Heroin is heroin. In this booklet, parents are taught what the signs of heroin use are and how the drug affects a person, physically, mentally, emotionally, and in his (or her) relationships with family, work and community.

The most dangerous effects of heroin use or addiction are then discussed, and treatment methods are described. Finally, the steps a parent can take to prevent his children “experimenting” with heroin, using it, jumping into the well of its addictive power are laid out in detail.

Clark Carr, President of Narconon International, explained the motivation behind the creation of this new booklet. "Parents absolutely are the most effective drug-prevention forces in a child’s life, or could be, but they may not know how to approach the subject of drugs," said Carr. "Our intention was to help a parent get started on those first few conversations with family about the real-life problems created by drug use. When and if parents take these recommendations to heart and pro-actively help their children understand these dangers, they and we together can reduce the number of drug addicts lining up for rehabilitation in our next generation. We have provided the booklet. I hope parents will use it and start the conversation with their families."
