Parents & Guardians

You’re a very important aspect of youth substance use prevention. In order to help our youth make healthy choices, parents and guardians must be knowledgeable about the current challenges our youth face.

Young people are the real key to youth substance use prevention! In our YSUP Youth Council, kids from across the county come together to develop prevention programs to educate and inform their peers about the dangers of substance use. Click here to learn more about joining us!


Like we said, it takes a community to make real change in the area of youth substance use. We are available to present to your group and educate them about the issues facing Rowan County’s young people and are always looking for partners in our prevention efforts. We also welcome any community members or business representatives to attend our meetings and events. Please click here to learn about ways you can get involved.
