Join us in helping your children “to resist drugs and violence”.


The D.A.R.E. Parent Program is based on goals similar to the D.A.R.E. program for students and is consistent with the ideals of positive prevention education. It is intended for parents with children in the school system. The focus will be on developing better skills to interact with children, learning about peer pressures and identifying signs of potential substance abuse and violence.


Considerable research has been conducted over the past two decades to learn how to prevent unhealthy destructive behaviors, including substance abuse, among children and adolescents. A comprehensive analysis of this research reveals that parents, family, and extended family have the most powerful impact on the adolescent’s intentions to use or not to use drugs or become involved in acts of violence.
