ABSATF Offers Tips for Keeping Youth Safe and Sober During Holidays
December 10, 2013
The abundance of holiday parties often means more opportunities to use drugs and alcohol. Not surprisingly, the increase in drug and alcohol-related tragedies is at least 50 percent during the holiday season. As a parent, you need to be on the lookout for potential situations that may endanger your child. Talk with them about why it’s a good idea to stay away from drugs and alcohol. And most importantly, be a role model of the behavior you would like to see in your children.
The Allston-Brighton Substance Abuse Task Force has tips and recipes to make sure your holidays stay safe and healthy. Please see our holiday brochure.
