Addiction Awareness Walk
Highland Village, TX

"We Have a Voice!"


On March 22, 2014 we held our 1st annual Addiction Awareness Walk, in an effort to bring education and awareness to the disease. There were over 200 participants as well as great sponsors. Many groups created "Teams" in the name of a specific person.  We had raffle prizes, sponsor network cards with a prize, speakers and ended with a balloon release.  There were facts about addiction everywhere you looked.

Fact:  Two-thirds of the families in the United States are dealing with addiction. 







"We Have a Voice!" and we must use it.  It is imperative that we continue to educate others about the disease of Addiction.  Until we eliminate the stigma and judgement, we will not be able to treat those suffering from this epidemic.

Tips For Parent's


Be sure to set family and house rules.  Where, when and with whom can your kids go?  If they are just chilling at a friends house, be sure to contact the friends parents to make sure they are home.  Youth that spend time unsupervised tend to push the rules. 

              "Idle hands are the devils workshop."


Giving your kid's money for entertainment is great.  Insist on receipts to see how they are spending the money.  If you give them $20 and they have receipts for on $10, next time only give them $10.00.  They will quickly learn.  I do not know any drug dealers that give receipts.  (This is a tip that our youth tell parent's they should have done with them.)


Do you have an adult child that is using and living at home, please reach out for help.  Yes, they need to hit rock bottom, but that does not mean you cannot speed it up by raising the bottom.  Need help, just ask. 


It is becoming the norm for parents to drug test their kids from about 6-7th grade on.  It is not because you don't trust them.  It is because you love them.  

Test randomly, about once a month as long as the test comes back negative.  (Pick a number between 1-30 for each month) .
These tests are done in your own home and read within 5 minutes.  If a test comes back positive, initiate the consequences, and test more often.   

Would love to test but the price at the local stores is so high?
WTF now sells a 10 panel drug test cup for $10.00 each.
