CASA at Columbia Launches Parent Power Forum

3/5/2008:   Calling ALL Parents! The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA*) wants to hear from YOU!

CASA has just launched a new forum--Parent Power--on its website at www.casacolumbia.org to engage parents in a conversation about how to raise kids alcohol- and drug-free!

CASA wants to hear from parents like you all across America to learn about your experiences in talking and listening to your children about alcohol, marijuana, pills, and other drugs. What works? What doesn't work? What are the questions you want answered? Your comments will be used to help shape CASA's second book, Parent Power, a guide to raising healthy and substance free children, which will be published in 2009.

To share your thoughts, questions, and ideas, simply log on to www.casacolumbia.org and click on the Parent Power link. Share now and you can be a part of creating the best book ever published to help raise healthy kids free of drugs and alcohol!
