Education Alliance Resource Kit
Extensive services and resources are available to parents and youth-serving professionals.
It can take a village. Let us share what we know.
As a parent or youth-serving professional, you are key in the prevention and intervention of substance use among our youth.
This resource kit is filled with tools and information that parents and youth-serving professionals can rely on to help you support children, teens, and young adults through a full continuum of care – from substance use prevention to recovery.
- Substance use is preventable. When education, skill building and support are provided on a regular basis by caring adults, the chances of youth engaging in risky behaviors like substance use decrease.
- Some youth have more risk factors than others. Those with a genetic predisposition, those who begin using early in life, those with a history of trauma, those struggling with their mental health and those living in challenging environments are at higher risk for developing substance use disorder (SUD).
- For those using, early intervention is key. When we identify and intervene with substance use in its early stages, before there is a total loss of control, we can halt the development of SUD and the many consequences it causes.
