Parents, Programs Can't Help

Editor:

In spite of popular belief, the best antidote (remedy or other agent used to neutralize or counteract the effects of a poison) against drug abuse is NOT "a loving parent who is involved in a child's life and sets the example by living drug-free." Parents are fooling themselves with this myth.

Additionally, no drug program is effective. A child involved in drugs is lost forever. Any evidence to the contrary is a rare exception.

I challenge anyone to prove these statements wrong.
