Substance Abuse Prevention and Education
Most substance abuse begins before the age of 20. Given this statistic it is critical that schools and parents take an active role in educating our youth about substance abuse through prevention programs and education. Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) supports Districts in implementing prevention programs and education for our youth and families.
Below is a video created by OCDE for parents on how you can assist in educating yourself and your child(ren) about substance abuse. There is also a link to several additional resources available for parents.
