The Family Box for Opioid Prevention got the conversation started about opioids, and the crisis that has resulted from their wide and ready availability over many years.
We heard from parents and teens how much they got out of the conversations and that it would be helpful to keep it going, while also learning more.
So now we’re giving you something else to talk about, by following up with the Parent Box edition about stimulants. It’s a supplement to the Family Box, and builds on what families have already discovered and learned. Ordering is limited to families who received the Family Box. If you did, you’ll get an invitation to order the Parent Box. Please note that we have a limited supply and can only fulfill the first 250 orders.
This box comes with new videos about stimulants and poly-drug use, and a standalone video player, plus in response to all the feedback we received for the first series of boxes, we’re also including a new set of topic-specific conversation cards.
Of course, there are gift cards for free food, thanks to our sponsor Bud’s Chicken & Seafood and more importantly, it comes with an invitation to sign up for Text-based support services, LSIS “Help & Hope by Text”
If you have a Family Box 5-12 but didn't receive an invitation for the New Parent Box please reach out via email to email@example.com
