Substance abuse stats encourage parents to get involved
As the holidays are already upon us, it is important to remember to be responsible when celebrating this season.

Alcohol consumption has regularly been found to contribute to the vast majority of fatal crashes. Many of those fatal crashes involve minors who have been consuming alcohol.
More often than not, when I contact a teenager’s parents to tell them their child has been arrested for drinking alcohol or committing other crimes after drinking, the reaction I hear is, “No, not my child.”
