Together we are stronger

It's closer to home than you think

 Do you have a child using or abusing drugs and/or alcohol?

Do you have concerns and feel exhausted, hopeless, or alone?

 PEP supports & educates families

dealing with the effects of substance abuse

in youth & adult children.

Together we rebuild hope.

   Parents Empowering Parents (PEP) Society was founded over 11 years ago as a result of a need.  Parents were out of solutions, hopeless, and alone in dealing with the issue of substance abuse in the home. Our co-founders identified the most significant way to help young people with substance abuse issues was through supporting and educating the parents & families

 Today PEP, a registered charity, continues to provide the community with innovative services for FREE.

 PEP was instrumental in getting the PChAD (Protection of Children Abusing Drugs Act) legislation in place as a resource for parents in Alberta, July 2006.
