Drug and Alcohol Awareness
Teen drug use continues to be of epidemic proportions in the U.S. every year.
The media has not adequately focused on the reasons “why” to early drug experimentation by teens, but has chosen to show individuals who have reached the stage of addiction, intervention and rehabilitation.
Kids “N” Crime believes if we are going to impact teen drug use we need to look not only at the reasons teens turn to drugs but we need to educate teens and parents about the physical, psychological and social impact of drug use. Drug abuse not only impacts a teens present but their future as well.
