Guiding Good Choices
Program Overview
A program by Channing Bete Guiding Good Choices is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention program that gives parents the skills they need to ensure the future well-being of their children. This program is geared toward parents of children in grades 4-8 (ages 9-14).

This program is administered over five two-hour sessions and teaches parents of preteens and younger adolescents the skills they need to improve family communication and family bonding

In a four-year follow-up study, the Guiding Good Choices program was shown to:
  • Reduce current alcohol use by 40.6%
  • Significantly reduce the rates of initiation for marijuana and drunkenness.
