The Strengthening Families Program . . .
REGISTER NOW – Begins March 2nd!

. . . strengthens family bonds, promotes positive communication, and enhances the ability to solve problems together


The Reality Tour® . . .
REGISTER NOW – Tuesday, March 24th!

. . . is designed for youth aged 10+ with a parent, because research indicates that youth are first exposed to alcohol, tobacco or other drugs between ages 10-12.  Adolescents who have a parent or other adult mentor are less likely to participate in risky behaviors.

Parent and child both receive accurate education about substance abuse and current trends, and begin or improve solid family communication skills.
