Families urged to eat together
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence-Orange County/Community Alliance Network is encouraging all families in Laguna Beach to eat dinner together Monday in an effort to prevent alcohol and substance use among youth.
More than a decade of research by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University has consistently found that the more often kids eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs, which led it to establish Family Day: A Day to Eat Dinner with your Children.
