Get informed! As a parent, it’s important to learn about the substances most commonly used by kids
The drugs that kids are exposed to today are not the same as the ones that we knew when we were young.
Sometimes it seems that new substances and new ways to improperly use them are being invented daily.
It’s important to know as much as possible about the substances pre-teens and teens may have heard about or been exposed to, in order to better understand their health effects on youth. As the parent or other trusted adult, you are in the best position to provide the young people in your life with factual information about drugs. We encourage you to have open and honest conversations about drugs with your pre-teen or teen, early and often.
The DFK Drug Guide for Parents is a comprehensive source of drug information that includes descriptions, street names, the health risks, and what your teen might have heard about them - to help you better understand the consequences of their use by youth.
