The Treasure Chest
Every day, this page is refreshed with breaking news stories that highlight the devastating effects of substance abuse. This is not the most pleasant page on our website, but it is absolutely full of potently relevant topics that you can bring up in conversation. Whether you allow the story itself to make the impact, or choose to elaborate with your own parental guidance, the content on this page will ensure that you never again have to go far to find a relevant ice breaker.
You can hover over the headline to read a brief summary. If you click on the link, a second window will open with the original news story, complete with sources. You can then print it, email it, bookmark it or otherwise share it however you want.
Don’t forget, if you’re looking for something more subtle, or if you would also like to arm yourself with some more sociable topics, we have plenty of other subjects available on the “Talking Points” page!
