Child Break – Dates Now Available for April & May 2017

Dates are filling up quickly! Most of our calendar has been filled for March. We are now scheduling presentations for April (Alcohol Awareness Month) and May. Please call now or click here to schedule your Child Break.

The 2017 revised Child Break includes our free child break program, a one-hour multimedia presentation that encourages and empowers parents and other adult caregivers to effectively communicate with children about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. In addition to covering underage drinking, marijuana use, and other drugs, we also include information on the abuse of prescription drugs and the current heroin/opiate addiction crisis we are facing throughout New Jersey. The program is presented free of charge. The program is for adults only. There are limited April and May dates. Professional Development Credit 1.5
