Description
What's a Parent to Do? by Nobel Peace Prize winner Henry David Abraham, M.D. bridges the knowledge gap between parent and child with a three-pronged approach: helping parents prevent drug/alcohol abuse before their child gets involved; providing readers with the essential facts on every street drug -- from tobacco to heroin -- that puts their children at risk; and showing parents what steps to take if their child already uses or is addicted to drugs or alcohol. Real life anecdotes and illustrated tables reinforce how to cope, and each chapter closes with "Take-Home Lessons: summarizing key points readers need to know when dealing with a particular aspect of drug/alcohol problems. The battle to stop the epidemic of drug use among the young begins at home. Prevention works. Treatment works. This clear, concise guide shows how parents can make the difference.
