Drug Free Mission Viejo
Prescription drug abuse among children in our community continues to grow at alarming rates. In fact, it is a national epidemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Because of that, Mission Viejo Television has developed “An Invisible Line,” a four-part series covering a slice of what is happening in and around Mission Viejo. Please visit the City's page regarding the impact drugs can have on our children.

The Parent Project
Parents are invited to take part in the Parent Project program that is designed to help children grow into safe and capable adults. For the last several years, the City of Mission Viejo has offered the 10-week program that was created for parents with difficult or out-of-control adolescent children. Developed over a 20-year-period, the curriculum helps parents learn and practice specific prevention and intervention strategies for defiant actions or destructive behaviors such as truancy, alcohol and drug use, gangs, running away, violence and other issues. Parents will learn proven tools and tactics to deal with poor grades, online gaming addictions and they will learn to understand teens and their use of technology.
Mission Viejo Deputy Sheriffs, including several of the School Resource Officers, receive 40 hours of training to facilitate the program, which caters to parents with kids in different stages of life. Deputies teaching the program can address every issue parents may have with their children to help them build better relationships.
