About the author (2012)

Kellena Page is a mother of two very independent and curious children who insist on having all of the facts, all of the time. When her teenager first approached her and her husband with questions about drugs and alcohol, they quickly discovered how much they didn't know. Kellena searched the Internet for answers but was unsuccessful in finding a single comprehensive source that answered basic questions about substance abuse and addiction. With as much difficulty as she was having searching for answers, she knew that other parents had to be experiencing the same frustration. It became clear that in order to obtain the answers to her son's questions, a significant amount of time and research was in order. Extensive research was conducted under her direction and the result is this book, a comprehensive and essential guide full of basic information that all parents should know and share with their teens. Everyone that has read this book has expressed surprise about how much they learned and dismay at how misinformed they were. Arming your kids with knowledge about substance abuse and addiction will not only enable them to make better choices but will also open a vital pathway of communication between you and your kids as they navigate their teenage years and beyond.
