More than one-half million Minnesotans have a DWI on record –translating to one in eight Minnesotans who are legally licensed to drive indicating much needed alcohol education and rehabilitation.
Impaired driving remains a serious threat on Minnesota roads. Each year, around 200 people are killed in alcohol-related crashes, 3,500 are injured, and more than 35,000 are arrested for DWI. These numbers prove a vital need for alcohol education and alcohol rehabilitation for those already caught in the grip of alcohol addiction. This is where Narconon Arrowhead steps in as a leader in these areas. Not only does Narconon Arrowhead educate our youth about the dangers of alcohol but also provides rehabilitation services for alcohol and drug addiction with a 70% success rate.
Minneapolis’ youth need to be aware that alcohol lowers a person’s inhibitions and ability to make correct judgments along with the fact that motor skills in an individual decrease once one has consumed alcohol. If a child is taught about the dangers of alcohol and drugs at an early age this can prevent them from traveling down the road of alcohol OR drug addiction. It is a proven fact that the younger a child begins drinking alcohol they increase the probability they will have to battle an addiction later in life. This begins a pattern which if not handled will ruin not only their adult life but also those who love and care for them. The best defense against any addiction is knowledge.
There are many things parents can do to prevent their children from drinking. One example is to drill questions with your son or daughter that they are likely to be asked concerning alcohol or drugs until they are able to answer without hesitation and with confidence. Give your children an answer for a way out when offered a drink, i.e. I am trying out for the hockey team and need to stay in shape. Establish a strong communication line with your children. Be the person they can come to with a problem rather than reacting and help them figure out a solution to that problem. You want to be open and honest when speaking with your children about alcohol addiction and talk to them on a level which they can understand. Listen instead of judging. This is of the utmost importance because younger individuals who try alcohol are more likely to experiment with drugs.
