"Mission Statement
To raise awareness of the epidemic use of prescription and illicit drugs in our community and to involve various members of the Bay Area in our fight. Our goal is to educate and provide resources to afflicted families and to ultimately address the root cause of addiction, so we can prevent other children from falling victim to drug and alcohol use, abuse, and addiction."

One of the proven tactics is reducing bad, addictive behaviors is to substitute good, even addictive style behaviors, like physical activities. Doesn't have to be sports, just something that employs, satisfactorily, most of the senses. Best of luck for our childrens' futures.

Drugs 'n young folks can be difficult. Anything that helps kids is worth a try.

Good luck with your program.

Good parenting starts at birth. Mothers with a Purpose should be at the Grammar school level first and carried on to higher schools. Starting at the highschool level probably doesn't give the best results. But, better late than never.
