Positive Alternatives


Positive Alternatives is a podcast for parents and teens intended to inform, share real life stories, and initiate conversations in the family regarding underage drinking and drug use. The podcast is hosted by Doug Petit who has spoken to well over 100,000 parents and teens about the perils of poor choices when it comes to alcohol and drugs. If you are looking for someone who knows the challenges that alcohol and drugs impose on our teens, I'm that guy.
