The Drug Free Family Pak Program
THE DRUG FREE FAMILY PAK PROGRAM
A Tool to Augment Individual and Family Therapy
Years of research have gone into the creation of the American Foundation for Drug Preventions Drug-Free Family PAK. It is one of the most comprehensive tools available for prevention action. Creators and presenters of the PAK all agree that the "War on Drugs" can only be won if it is fought one family at a time. Whether you have a drug-free family is something you can do a great deal about. And the Drug-Free Family PAK, along with the network of concerned prevention activists shows the specific steps you can take and build upon to keep yourself and your children drug-free throughout the life of your family.
Purposes of the Program
- To Empower Parents and Youth
No one can provide the protection a child needs better than an informed and involved parent or care giver. An uninformed parent may be a childs worst enemy. The program provides the education and direction parents of todays children need in order to help their children develop a solid foundation they can use for the rest of their lives.
- To Improve Family Relationships
Prevention is all about healthy, purposeful families. The principles and actions outlined in the program will do more than just protect your child. They will also provide the basis of a quality family experience for all family members. You are not just raising your child when you parent; you are raising your grandchild as well. Children raised by these principles will apply them to their children, and extended family will benefit down the line.
- To Provide Peace of Mind
Informed parents are less fearful parents. If you want to overcome fear, study and learn about whatever it is you are afraid of. Prevention is equipping a child to walk through a drug-filled world drug-free.
