Event description

Description

A life-changing event is coming to Selma! 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 by Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health, Substance Use Disorder Services. Selma's Reality Tour is being spearheaded by the Selma Police Department with support from Selma Bringing Broken Neighborhoods Back to Life, Selma Unified School District, Selma Fire Department, City of Selma, Selma Chamber of Commerce, and the Selma Salvation Army.

Reality Tour Death Scene


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!
