FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Joint Forces to Prevent Teen Drinking
September 27, 2023
The Defiance County Drug Free Coalition and area school districts have joined forces to prevent adult hosted drinking parties in Defiance County using the Parents Who Host Lose the Most: Don’t Be a Party to Underage Drinking campaign.
Parents Who Host Lose the Most is a community effort that alerts parents to the legal and health related consequences of purchasing, providing or pouring alcohol for anyone under age 21, other than their own child. As part of the campaign, coalition members will be providing information about the dangers of underage drinking, the legal consequences of hosting underage drinking in your home and how parents and other family members can host safe and fun alcohol free events for youth.
We encourage you to discuss these issues with your teen to establish safe ground rules and reinforce positive decision- making. And remember…..It’s not worth it!!
This project is a joint effort of the Prevention Action Alliance, Defiance County Health Partners Committee, and the Defiance County Drug Free Coalition.
