Keys for Kids

The scourge of drug addiction is plaguing our nation. You probably know someone or are friends with someone who has either lost someone or nearly lost someone to a drug overdose. According to US figures opioid related deaths have doubled in just 10 years. Here are the signs. Drowsiness, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, dry mouth, headaches, sweating, and mood changes. As parents, talk openly drugs and their dangers, especially with your tweens and teens. Talk about how dangerous they can be and how it can become a god in their life. In many cases drugs are used to medicate emotional and physical pain with or without Christ. There are faith-based groups to help. Our website can point you to a few suggested groups. (888) 381-7967
