New Risk Assessment Tool
Whenever a child presents new behavior, especially if it seems unusual or out of character, parents take notice. This happens throughout life, but we know that parents are on highest alert when their kids start being exposed to — or even start experimenting with — drugs and alcohol.
To help parents get better answers to their questions about their children’s behavior at this critical time, Partnership to End Addiction has created a risk assessment tool. The tool helps parents identify factors such as school connectedness, mental health, risk-taking, impulsivity, and others that could lead to increased risk for developing addiction or substance use disorder.
Everyone who completes the assessment receives a report highlighting their child’s risk factors along with resources that they can use to mitigate those potential risks.
