Family Focus Programme in Connect Family Resource Centre, 171 Moneymore, Drogheda on Tuesday 7th Nov 2017 from 7-9pm
“What is the Family Focus Programme?”
Problems with alcohol and other drugs affect people of all ages and all walks of life. Many parents find it difficult to discuss drugs and drug related issues with their children. They may feel they know too little to have any real impact on the opinions of their young people. Yet studies clearly show that parents have a positive impact on the life-style choices and drug taking behaviour of their children. Consisting of six sessions, this interactive programme promotes the role of the parent in educating their young people about risk associated with substance use, in an effort to reduce the demand for drugs. Delivered within a health promoting framework, our programme provides participants with an opportunity to:
- Update information on drugs and their effects
- Explore attitudes and decisions about substance misuse
- Develop a family focused drug prevention strategy
Classes will be held weekly. To register for the Family Focus programme, please contact Alan Duff.
