Engaging Families In Effective Substance Abuse Prevention (On behalf of FCD Educational Services)

Schools and Families Together

Effective prevention approaches bring the entire community together – including students and their families. When FCD works with a school – to deliver intensive student education seminars, to train faculty or to consult with a prevention planning team – this important effort is just one piece of a more comprehensive substance abuse prevention approach. Our guidance and training are meant to empower school communities to continue their own prevention conversations, plans and successes into the future. We especially hope that our work will engage your community’s families in the reinforcement of key prevention strategies. This is our hope, because at FCD we know that children whose parents talk to them about the risks of alcohol and other drug use are much less likely to get into trouble with substances.
