Parents are the biggest influence on kids when it comes to drinking, smoking or using drugs. That’s right. You may not think they pay attention, but research shows that the number one reason kids say they don’t use drugs is because they don’t want to disappoint their parents! You are NOT alone. We are here to support you! Contact the NC Parent Resource Center for more information.
