MUS hosted representatives from Freedom from Chemical Dependency, the leading international provider of school-based substance-abuse prevention services, last week. MUS and FCD have a long-standing relationship, and the representatives who visit our campus are authentic, approachable, and engaging. They provided programs tailored to specific grade levels.
At the parent luncheon, attendees heard the latest data regarding teen alcohol and drug use, and FCD reps empowered parents to have family discussions about making healthy life decisions. We hope you take this opportunity to talk with your son about this vital topic. Click here to see the FCD parent presentation.
At MUS we believe that teenagers should never use alcohol, tobacco, or other illicit drugs. Their use is illegal and potentially devastating. Also, we believe that the primary responsibility for supervision of students when they are not participating in school activities lies with their parents; we strongly support parents in their responsibility and authority by offering information, counselors, and programs that will inform and encourage parental efforts at combating the use of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs by their sons.
