Your child’s friends use drugs. How do you keep your child safe?

People – especially young people – are highly influenced by their peers. Friends can shape our opinions, attitudes and behavior. If your child is around people who are using drugs, or talking a lot about drugs, they may feel pressure to join in or may feel curious about experimentation. You can help your child think about their decisions about substance use before they are in a high-pressure situation. This module can guide you through this difficult but necessary conversation with your child.
