October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month. However, for a parent, every month and every day is a focus on our children and how we can promote health and safety for their well-being in our homes and our communities.
The following is a list of topics that PfA has collected over the years regarding substances, whether legal or illegal. Please keep in mind that this list is by no means exhaustive and that new synthetic drugs are being created and modified all the time.
