Drugs and Alcohol

  • Discuss the use of alcohol and drugs openly with your child.
  • Emphasize the need to make conscious behavior choices.
  • Talk about ways that your child can handle drinking environments at parties.
  • Discover a comfortable way to say "no".
  • Drink non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Don't participate in drinking games.
  • Be the "designated driver".
  • Discuss the implications of legal charges and career ramifications of underage drinking or drunk driving - drug and alcohol charges can seriously hurt your chances of finding a professional job.
  • Drinking and drug-use are generally involved in incidents of sexual assault or making unhealthy choices about sexual activity.
  • Emphasize healthy social choices such as campus clubs, going to movies, joining intramurals, etc.
  • If your child makes poor choices, encourage them to come to you to discuss options.
  • The Counseling Center can be an excellent resource.
