Pathway to Prevention

Educating communities about teen substance use and abuse

Today's teens live in a very different world than the one their parents grew up in. It is a world where children grow up more quickly, often experimenting with drugs or alcohol at a very early age. Those early "experiments" can lead to car accidents, date rape, overdose or blackout drinking or a lifetime struggle with drugs or alcohol. These dangers are avoidable if families understand the high stakes games that teens play with that first drink or pill. Pathway to Prevention is here to educate and support families -- parents and teens -- with resources and accurate information about today's teen drinking and drugging scene.
