Speak Now Colorado Highlighted by Craig Daily Press

A new website — Speak Now! — offers strategies for parents and children to develop a plan to manage peer pressure regarding the use of drugs and alcohol.

According to the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, youth who feel they can ask a parent, guardian or other adult for help are one-and-a-half times less likely to binge drink. The survey says that creating a plan is a helpful way to start discussing healthy choices with children, especially if a young person is increasingly curious about alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs or other drugs.
