New Website Gives Parents Resources to Talk to Their Children about the Risks of Underage Drinking
Today, The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) introduced Talk2Prevent.NY.gov, a new website that gives parents tools to talk to their children about the risks of underage drinking. We applaud OASAS for stepping up and tackling this difficult issue for many families. We are especially thrilled the website pivots around the importance of family structure which is at the core of Educational Alliance programming.
Educational Alliance's Project HELP (Health, Education, Leadership, and Prevention) program, funded by OASAS, provides community-based education with specific programming developed for families, teens, and adults of East Village and Lower East Side. Project HELP staff works closely with local elementary, middle and high schools, after school programs and early childhood educational institutions to incorporate alcohol and drug prevention into academic curricula, youth development services and family support services.
Please take a moment to visit the website to learn how you can talk with your family about this important issue: Talk2Prevent.NY.gov
