A life-changing event is coming to Parlier High School! The event is called Reality Tour ®, a drug prevention program designed to improve discussions about drug use among parents and their children!
Designed by CANDLE, Inc., the program is being presented by the California Health Collaborative’s Performing Above The High (PATH) Project through funding of Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health, Substance Use Disorder Services. This event is being organized in the community of Parlier with assistance from the California Health Collaborative, Parlier High School - Parlier Unified School District, United Health Centers-Parlier, Parlier Police Department, and other community agencies.
Recent studies indicate youth who have a parent actively talking with them about drug and alcohol use are less likely to participate in risky behaviors. As a result of this program, parents and youth will be able to communicate more effectively about the dangers involved with using illegal substances.
42% of youth surveyed reported an increase in discussion within the home regarding substance abuse.
46% of youth reported that discussion in the home was made easier by the Reality Tour® experience.
92% of youth reported they used the information provided during the Reality Tour® within 30 days.
Perception of harm for gateway drugs, tobacco, alcohol, marijuana as well as illicit drugs increased.
This 3 hour interactive program gives families the tools needed to reduce the risk of substance abuse. This award winning program has been recognized locally, nationally, and internationally!
