Boston’s Project Family doing what it takes to prevent drug abuse in the community
Drug abuse and crime go hand in hand but when the proper drug education is disseminated we can save our youth from both. Boston like many other cities has a high drug abuse rate which also comes with a high crime rate. Can Boston’s Project Family program help to decrease these high numbers by educating youths and their families about drugs and alcohol? Early drug abuse prevention is a critical part of helping a community to focus and be aware of the dangers of drug abuse. Narconon Arrowhead is helping and has been since 2000 by offering drug education lectures across the nation.
Boston’s Project Family has been working to get families the education they need to prevent drug abuse. When a family has good communication they can talk freely about anything and feel comfortable about it. Drug and alcohol abuse is a very important topic for families to talk about in this day and age. Since many pre-teens are getting exposed to drugs and alcohol at such early ages it’s critical for parents to get involved and get educated so that they can also educated their children. By knowing the signs of addiction and the dangers families will be able to protect themselves and their loved ones from the growing problem of drug and alcohol abuse. If we can do what it takes to prevent drug and alcohol abuse before it starts we are helping the entire nation. The youth of this nation needs to be protected because, they are the future and if we fail them what kind of future will the world see.
Drug prevention should be on the front of every parents mind because the truth is addiction has no discrimination factor nor does it have an age limit. Children who are exposed to alcohol at an early age are at greater risk of trying marijuana which is also a gate way drug to other harder more dangerous narcotics such as: cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, LSD to name a few. Once a child goes down the path of experimentation with drugs and alcohol it is harder to get them back on the right track which is why prevention is so important. The age at which most children start to use drugs and alcohol is 12 years old. Though there are those you may start at even a younger age, 12 years of age is a prime age for peer-presser to start and for children to want to try new things just to fit in.
