I admire the Northumberland County drug and alcohol committee members who are present in our schools trying to pick up and to prevent addiction in children as early as elementary school who have a genetic predisposition and pain in their childhood. Parents be involved in your child's life and read their social media messages, emails, Twitter accounts, and Facebook pages. Your job is to parent not to be your child's friend, but to parent them and protect them. We as a community must help treat this devastating and terminal disease.
