Enjoy 15-Minute Child Break from the Partnership for a Drug-Free NJ
Friday, May 08, 2020
NewBridge Services is pleased to offer a virtual version the Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey’s 15-Minute Child Break to schools, parents, and the community at large.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to keep the lines of communication open for the children in our lives, and to be empowered as parents, grandparents and caregivers.
The 15-Minute Child Break program is free, and since it’s a pre-recorded presentation, it can be watched at your convenience.
Take the time to read the parent resource guide that is included in the link, as well as other resources. The guide expands on the information on alcohol, tobacco, nicotine, marijuana and opioids, offers specific strategies on how to handle this issue with children, and contains a listing of available resources to address a potential substance use problem.
