are some reasons teens try alcohol, marijuana, other drugs, or vaping. Whether it’s the first time or more than once, teen substance use can lead to other problems. Prevent the possible progression from early use to problems. Free preventive education and/or help tailored for each teen and parent is available, serving New York State’s Hudson Valley counties: Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester.
