The abuse of prescription painkillers and heroin (opioids) can create brain changes that lead to addiction. One way to treat opioid addiction is with Naltrexone/Vivitrol, a type of medication-assisted treatment. Hear from experts Adam Bisaga, MD, Research Scientist, New York State Psychiatric Institute and Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University Medical Center; Dr. Alicia Murray, Board Certified Psychiatrist & Board Certified Addiction Psychiatrist; and Mike, a 24-year-old Naltrexone/Vivitrol patient committed to recovery, and his parents.

“It’s like an etiquette guide for dealing with addicts. Yet its goals are much more ambitious: By making loved ones feel listened to, empowered, and supported, CRAFT’s proponents say, family members can motivate them to seek help. And it appears to work.” 

Read more about the Community Reinforcement and Family Training approach and how it’s changing lives in this powerful article in The Boston Globe that features our Parent Partner Susan Knade. It’s an approach we know well and use via our Helpline and parent community. http://ow.ly/VAo9y #addiction   #treatment   #support   #family   #CRAFT   #parenting

Many parents don’t know how to respond when their teen asks point blank if they smoked weed when they were younger. Well, whether you did or didn’t smoke marijuana, there’s no need to squirm. Watch this final video in our series to find out how to answer this loaded question.

Plus, subscribe to our YouTube channel to be the first to receive new videos from the Partnership!

Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is dedicated to reducing substance abuse among adolescents by supporting families and engaging with teens. We develop public education campaigns that drive awareness of teen substance abuse, and lead teen-targeted efforts that inspire young people to make positive decisions to stay healthy and avoid drugs and alcohol. On our website, drugfree.org, and through our toll-free helpline (1-855-DRUGFREE), we provide families with direct support and guidance to help them address teen substance abuse. Finally, we build healthy communities, advocating for great access to adolescent treatment and funding for youth prevention programs. As a national nonprofit, we depend on donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and the public sector and are thankful to SAG-AFTRA and the advertising and media industries for their ongoing generosity.

These people have received millions of dollars from major pharmaceutical, tobacco and alcohol corporations including American Brands (Jim Beam whiskey), Philip Morris (Marlboro and Virginia Slims cigarettes, Miller beer), Anheuser Busch (Budweiser, Michelob, Busch beer), R.J. Reynolds (Camel, Salem, Winston cigarettes), as well as pharmaceutical firms Bristol Meyers-Squibb, Merck & Company and Procter & Gamble. And they still receive donations from pharmaceutical companies. Their PSAs have little proven effect on drug use.
