Dinner Makes the Difference
Frequent family dinners effectively prevent substance abuse in kids and the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and Community Alliance Network have declared Sept. 26 Family Day to encourage families to share a meal together.
More than a decade of research by Columbia University’s Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse has consistently found that the more often kids eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs.
