The mission of the Bienville Parish Community Coalition is to plan and implement strategies that prevent and reduce youth substance use and its associated consequences through community and parish-wide collaborative efforts. While the focus is on youth, programs and services shall also target adults, businesses, the faith-based community, families and other indicated populations.
SADD’s mission is to empower young people to successfully confront the risks and pressures that challenge them throughout their daily lives. We accomplish this by creating, equipping, and sustaining a network of student-run chapters in schools and communities focused on peer-to-peer education. SADD fosters a sense of belonging and promotes resiliency, leadership, and advocacy skills so that young people make positive life decisions that will carry them throughout life.
To prepare your teen for today's world, you must be aware of what's going on. Learn what to watch out for so you can help them do the same.
You have more influence on your child's attitude toward drinking and drugs than you know, especially BEFORE they are exposed to them.
Whether you need prevention, intervention, or rehabilitation, there is help if you know where to look. Find resources in your community.
In a 2014 online survey of 663 high school students by MADD, teens whose parents told them there were against underage drinking were more than 80% less likely to drink than teens whose parents didn’t give them a clear message. Make the message clear to your teens. If you don't, someone else will decide what message they hear.
