New Online Tool Helping Latino Parents to Prevent Kids' Substance Use

The Partnership at Drugfree.org

As a Hispanic mother of two children, I recognize the need to empower Hispanic parents and grandparents to take action in preventing teen substance abuse. That’s why we just launched new, online tools for Hispanic parents and families at "Habla Con Tus Hijos." This free, bilingual (Spanish/English) resource offers help to Latino parents who want to prevent their children from abusing drugs and alcohol.

Clear, understandable content is brought to life with customized checklists, how-to guides and videos featuring Hispanic parents and experts touching on various aspects of substance abuse for those who are at different stages in raising their children.

I sat down with Telemundo television network to tell them more about this unique resource - take a look at the extensive news coverage that helped us reach more families in the Hispanic community.

I also spent time talking directly with Latino parents on Univision Radio’s popular, live call-in program, "The Doctora Isabel Show," where we discussed new research showing that rates of substance abuse among Hispanic teens are at much higher levels than those of teens from other ethnic groups.

Working together, we can protect our children from the dangers of drugs and alcohol abuse. Please tell a friend about

"Habla Con Tus Hijos" today.

Thank you,
