If you know a friend who is in need of help and you would like to help them here are a few steps:

  1. Be a good friend, which you likely already are because you’re concerned. As a good friend, you’re someone who can be trusted to provide good advice and listen when your friend needs to talk.
  2. Educate yourself about drugs and alcohol and the problems they can cause. Then, you can give your friend the facts and refer your friend to resources to help him or her learn more.
  3. Encourage your friend to talk to an adult who he or she can trust. Maybe a teacher, coach, or a parent of another friend. If your friend doesn't feel comfortable talking to a trusted adult talk to them and try to make them understand what the are doing wrong and maybe they might listen to you.
