If you or your child is over the age of 10, you may want to consider attending the Beaver County Reality Tour. On behalf of Beaver County Behavioral Health, the Community Health Challenge is providing a nationally known drug prevention realty tour program. A national project of CANDLE, Inc., the Reality Tour Drug Prevention Program was developed to educate our youth in an all-encompassing drug prevention program. If someone gave you some urine so you can pass a drug test then make sure to check what temperature of human pee.
Statistics show that children are exposed to drugs and alcohol in some way, shape, or form by the age of 10 years old. This program also has a requirement that children attend with a parent present. A quote from the Community Health Challenge website states, “Research indicates that youth are first exposed to alcohol, tobacco or other drugs between ages 10-12. Recent studies are showing that adolescents who have a parent or other adult mentor are less likely to participate in risky behaviors. Parent and child both receive accurate education about substance abuse and current trends, and begin or improve solid family communication skills.”
This program serves exactly as it is described. A reality tour. It is filled with emotional, dramatic, intense, and troubling material. The registration and waiver form allows participants to opt-out of some of the more intense situations such as: Peer Pressure, the Funeral Scene, Arrest, Prison, the ER, and Overdosing.
The Reality Tour is scheduled on November 13, 2014 from 6-9 at the Pathway Church in Beaver Falls. Children must be accompanied by a parent only and are asked to arrive by 5:45. Additional questions can be directed to the Community Health Challenge office: 724-432-3474.
