Prevention and Recovery Resources



Alcohol Use

Alcohol is the most popular substance among teens and young adults, and it poses substantial risks for their health and safety. Throughout Alcohol Awareness Month this April, we will be sharing resources to help you address youth drinking. While the number of teens drinking has decreased over the past few decades, when we consider the consequences of youth alcohol use — driving under the influence, accidents and alcohol poisoning, damage to the developing brain or addiction — it’s essential to stay up to date and take action to protect young people. Our resource guide for families includes information about why young people use alcohol, what types of alcohol they use and how to protect your child from youth drinking. We also offer solutions regarding preventative measures that can be put in place and what you can do if you discover your child is drinking.

Throughout April, stay connected with Partnership to End Addiction on social media for more resources pertaining to Alcohol Awareness Month.

Cigarette Use and Nicotene Addiction

The health benefits that come from quitting smoking begin almost immediately after you quit. That’s because the moment you stop, your body starts repairing damage caused by smoking. Before you create your quit plan, it’s important to understand what’s going on in your body. Cigarettes contain nicotine, which is a stimulant drug. It is psychoactive, meaning it affects the mind. The nicotine alters your brain chemistry, producing pleasing effects in the brain that cause you to crave another cigarette. And the more you smoke, the more nicotine you need to feel the same effects.

Marijuana use interferes with attention, motivation, memory, and learning. When used heavily during the teen years, it may lower grades and your IQ.

Good communication between parents and children is the foundation of strong family relationships. Developing good communication skills helps parents catch problems early, support positive behavior, and stay aware of what is happening in their children’s lives

Youth are bombarded with societal messages drugs, premarital sex, and other high risk behaviors.  We help youth make better choices and not engage in these risky behaviors such as substance abuse, sexual activity, dropping out of school, crime, and suicide.
A guide that delves into critical topics, offering students and educators valuable insights and strategies. The sections cover Understanding Substance Abuse, Signs and Symptoms, Prevention Strategies, and Resources for Help and Support. These areas are crafted to inform and equip individuals with the knowledge to recognize risk factors, identify symptoms, and engage in effective prevention efforts. By incorporating this guide into your resources, you can offer a vital tool to students, enhancing their well-being and academic performance. 
Our children are constantly being bombarded with information and media from TV, smartphones, computers, and tables.
