While CASA’s focus is always on reducing youth substance use, our education programs for parents cover a wide range of issues that impact their childrens' wellness. From mental health, to screen time, to anxiety to substance use, we strive to make sure that parents are educated on all of the risk factors for substance use and abuse.

Distributing naloxone to laypersons has resulted in thousands of overdose reversals and many saved lives.
