NIDA Provides Free Materials for Teens
& Together We Shatter the Myths About Drugs

Parents have more influence over their child than friends, music, TV, the Internet and celebrities.

Kids who learn a lot about the risks of drugs and alcohol from their parents are up to 50% less likely to use than those who do not.

Help your teen stay safe and make healthy choices by:

  • Talking and listening regularly
  • Making it clear that you do not want him or her drinking or using drugs
  • Being directly involved in your child’s everyday world
  • Setting limits

Tualatin Together is about the Tualatin community working together to educate youth and parents about the risks involved in underage drinking and drug use, reduce the access and availability, and provide positive activities and adult support that will help our youth make good choices.

Alcohol and drug use by our youth is unhealthy, illegal, and can lead to risky behavior such as unwanted sex, violence, and criminal activities. It is also strongly related to poor academic performance, higher rates of auto accidents and youth suicide. Unfortunately, it is a common perception by many youth that alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs are not harmful to their health.

Tualatin Together would love to hear from you as we work towards creating local solutions for local situations.
