An effort is underway across Ohio to prevent alcohol, tobacco and drug use among Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens – our children. Start Talking! Grove City was developed to give parents, guardians, educators and community leaders the tools to start the conversation with the Grove City area youth about the importance of living healthy lives.

A majority of substance-free adolescents credit their parents for the decision not to use illegal substances. Likewise, teachers and other authority figures can have a similar influence on youth and their decision-making.

Parents, mentors and peers can make a difference just by talking to the young people in their lives about drug abuse. Please Start Talking!
