Communication is Key to Substance Use Prevention

The Food and Drug Administration recently issued a warning about a social media challenge encouraging individuals to cook chicken using Nyquil.  This warning serves as another example of the need for continued efforts to raise awareness of the dangers associated with misusing and abusing medications.

I encourage you to share this information with your community.  Additionally, in recognition of National Red Ribbon Week this week, please consider taking advantage of the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey’s (PDFNJ) 15-Minute Child Break Program

15-Minute Child Break is an interactive, multimedia webinar that informs, encourages and empowers parents, educators and caregivers to effectively communicate with children about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. It offers prevention strategies for underage drinking, marijuana use, vaping, e-cigarettes and opioids. The webinar is available in both English and Spanish. If you would like to learn more about our Child Break program or would like to schedule it for your organization, please click here.
