TALBOT GOES PURPLE
Interactive Resource Tool
It is incredibly difficult to watch your child, no matter how old, struggle with a substance use disorder. Please remember that you are not alone in this! If you haven’t already, talk with your son/daughter about your concerns. Try and do this with no judgment and without ‘talking down’ to the person.
Ask your son/daughter if they would like to get help.
It also is very important that you take care of yourself, regardless of whether or not your child decides to get help.
