Drug Prevention Resource for Families 

Mark Pardue is the MSD of Lawrence Township Family Liaison for Prevention.  He works with students and families to prevent drug and alcohol abuse in our student population.  
During this time of transition and uncertainty, it is our hope to give students the tools to avoid destructive coping strategies such as drugs, vaping, or alcohol use to manage stress.  Mr. Pardue is available to provide you and your family with as many resources as possible to help you support your student in making healthy choices.
Over the next few weeks, Mr. Pardue will post articles, tools and resources to support your student during this unstructured time.
Please also feel free to email Mr. Pardue with questions, concerns, and requests for help.  Click here to contact Mr. Mark Pardue directly.
