The Parent Project - Stories of Recovery

Drug Free Kids Canada wants to create a movement to inspire and support parents to take action to prevent drug abuse by their kids.

The Parent Project hopes to:

  • Sensitize parents and teens to the prevalence of teen drug abuse and addiction.
  • Create an awareness that this can happen to any child.
  • Promote conversation within families about how to make healthy choices.
  • Inspire parents to Never Give Up!
