Do you want to to feel more confident in talking to your children about drugs and alcohol? YPDAAT can help!
Research tells us that parents have the biggest impact on their children's decisions to use drugs and alcohol, and that having open and honest conversations and clear and consistent boundaries can really help your children make positive choices. Lots of parents worry that they don't know enough abouts drugs to be able to speak to their children, or that they don't really know how to start these conversations.
YPDAAT are holding regular, confidential, group sessions for parents to come together help enhance their knowledge around drugs and alcohol, and increase their confidence in talking to their children about substance use.
Feedback from parents on our previous sessions has included “I received some good techniques to use and address substance use with my child.” “Very good and informative session, it was good hearing from other parents.” “I am confident I can apply this to my son.”
The next session will be arranged soon. If you're interested call 01744 675605 or email email@example.com and we can reserve your place.
St Helens Young People's Drug and Alcohol Team (YPDAAT), provide young people and their families in St Helens with a range of interventions to help them to make informed choices around drug and alcohol use in order to achieve their full potential.
Despite what you might think, most young people chose not to use drugs or alcohol. Of those that do most young people will grow out of this without any issues.
