Community Partners in Prevention (Eureka, MO)

This grant will fund their Parent Up Rockwood Project. Data shows that parents play a critical role in youth substance use prevention. Parent Up Rockwood will be an overarching messaging campaign to encompass educational messaging and presentations geared toward parents in our community. Topics will include: how to talk to teens about substance use, developing resilient youth, anti-vaping strategies and tobacco cessation, medical marijuana safety, prescription drug safety, and reducing youth access to alcohol.  Normalizing these topics in communities and families reduces the stigma associated with substance use and allows youth to ask for help when struggling with a substance use disorder.

This grant will allow the Byrnes Mill Police Department to utilize AIR’s Hidden in Plain View exhibit during its “Parenting Seminar on Teen Alcohol and Drug Abuse”. This exhibit includes an interactive teen bedroom that educates parents and caregivers on the signs of risky behavior.  Adults can tour the bedroom and learn about over 70 red flags that may signal that a teen is using drugs and/or alcohol. Caregivers leave with a detailed handbook offering prevention advice and photos/explanations of all of the items that may signal a teen is involved in risky behavior.

Hope Creates (Chesterfield, MO)
