Healthcare Partners

Research from The Partnership shows that parents turn to their doctors for information about substance abuse and would like more information from their healthcare providers about the issue. The Arizona Affiliate’s healthcare provider program involves educating physicians, school nurses, teachers and school counselors about the current trends in substance abuse among children, how drug use can be prevented and where to go for help.

In partnership with the Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, participating physicians distribute information and participate in a speaker’s bureau to educate their patients, their patients’ parents, and the general public about the health risks of drugs.
