Substance Prevention Alliance of Needham

Needham Parents Care


Empower parents, empower youth  

Needham Parents Care is subset of the Substance Prevention Alliance of Needham (SPAN) and is made up of parents of school-aged children. The group meets quarterly to discuss how we can empower Needham parents to:

  • Talk to their children in order to enhance overall health and wellness

  • Build coping skills

  • Enhance resilience

The goal is to establish these discussions and routines early, so they are in place when the pressures associated with substances and other risky behaviors come into play.

If you are interested in getting involved with Needham Parents Care or would like to be added to our email list, please contact
