Red Ribbon Week: Keeping Youth Off Drugs
This week is Red Ribbon Week, an annual push for more parents to be aware of the drug risks their kids may face. DeWayne Holman from the Nashville Prevention Partnership lists warning signs that your child may be abusing drugs or alcohol, explains why prescription medications are the new substance abuse threat, and gives tips on how to limit the accessibility of harmful substances. Vaughn Ownbey from the Partnership for a Drug Free America then lists the biggest drug threats to Tennessee, including meth and alcohol, and how parents and the media can take an active role in stopping drug use.
