Sean Fearns, Section Chief, DEA Community Outreach, asked to share the below:

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Community Outreach Section is pleased to announce the release of an updated version of Growing Up Drug Free: A Parent’s Guide to Prevention. DEA partnered with the U.S. Department of Education to update this publication that was last revised in 2012. This 40-page booklet offers information to help parents and other caregivers raise drug-free children. The guide includes an overview of substance use among youth; descriptions of substances young people may use; a look at risk factors that may make kids more vulnerable to trying and using drugs, and protective factors to offset those risks; suggestions for how to talk to children about drugs, regardless of their age; and tips on what to do if you suspect your child is using alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs.

The publication is on the Get Smart About Drugs website
