“Take 5”

The club is a great way to talk to my daughter and help her see how bad alcohol/drugs are. Thank you!!!

Proud parents whose children have joined the Club keep a watchful eye for our “Take 5” logo. It is a symbol that DFCA has set the stage for an ideal parenting opportunity, and comes with tips on how to capitalize on the moment. The ongoing nature of Club events throughout the year such as testing, rewards, and the annual scholarship contest, gives DFCA the unique ability to notify parents about these perfect chances to talk to their teen. Doing so allows mom or dad to frame an ongoing dialogue with their child about drugs and alcohol that is not awkward or accusatory. The Partnership for a Drug Free America concluded that these types of parent/child conversations have been found to decrease the likelihood of teen drug abuse by up to 50%!”
