It is never too early to start talking about the effects of drugs on health and help your kids understand the outcomes of the choices they make when it comes to drugs and alcohol. However, as parents or supportive adults, we may not always know how to answer some of these commonly asked questions:
Why do people use drugs and alcohol?
How can I help my friend stop using?
Is Vaping really that bad?
Can you get addicted to ADHD medication?
Can marijuana be used as medicine?
Thankfully, there are lots of resources online to help make it easier. Visit NIDA's website for more ideas on conversation topics and resources to help communicate with your teens.
