Why Guiding Good Choices?
Substance abuse and teens, unfortunately, are a big issue in communities -- Marysville no exception. Marysville Together is passionate about raising awareness, providing resources and solutions, and ultimately, decreasing substance abuse in our teens. Guiding Good Choices draws on extensive research that demonstrates the critical importance of bonding in reducing or inhibiting adolescent participation in antisocial behaviors.
How does it work?
During the course of the Guiding Good Choices program, parents will learn specific strategies to help their children avoid drug use and other adolescent problem behaviors, and develop into healthy adults. Parents will learn to set clear family guidelines on drugs, as well as learn and practice skills to strengthen family bonds, help their children develop healthy behaviors, and increase children's involvement in the family.
