Parenting teens can be difficult.
Parenting teens who are using or abusing drugs can be a nightmare.
The very strategies parents often use to stop their children from using drugs sometimes only drive their children closer to drug-using friends and drug dealers.
For parents interested in preventing or stopping teen drug use in their families, addiction behavioral specialist Shawna Bowen will be offering a free all-day seminar, Seven Strategies to Survive and Solve Drug Use in the Family, at the Cottonwood Public Safety Building on Saturday, April 28, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The seminar will cover topics such as understanding how addiction starts, loving versus enabling your drug-using teen, creating and maintaining boundaries, and strategies to avoid teen manipulation.
