Drug Proof Your Kids- by Stephen Arterburn & Jim Burns


If you have a child age 14 or older, you can be almost certain that he or she has tried using drugs or alcohol. Eighty-five percent of all young people say that they have experimented with intoxicating substances—a statistic that includes children from strong Christian families. But there is something you can do. Drugproof Your Kids gives you practical, biblical steps that you can take to head off or, if necessary, work through a drug crisis. Co created by one of the nation's top youth leaders, and the director of a leading drug and alcohol treatment program, this book will help you understand why any child—your child—is at risk when it comes to drugs and alcohol. It will give you the most effective techniques available to keep your kids drug-free.
