Overview of Ginger Katz's past work

Ginger has received numerous awards, speaking invitations and media recognitions for her work. Please click here to read an overview of Ginger's work.

Ginger has a powerful story about teen drug use and teen drug abuse.  Hear her courage to speak in her Drug prevention presentation.  When Ginger speaks about teen drug use the feedback she receives is amazing.

Sharing her heart breaking story about childhood drug use can be eye opening.  Not only will the parents and facilitators be engaged by this drug prevention presentation, the children will be as well.  That will help drive home the drug prevention message to your children and teens.  

So many need help parenting with such a diverse set of problems facing today’s teens.  Having a middle school drug prevention program can be a supplement to parenting success.  Ginger wants to spread her message of the harmful effects on a teens life.

Watching a young life destroyed by substance use and substance abuse is a horrible thing.  There are too many stories about drug use in this country today.  Drug awareness speakers can help children make the right decisions to stay drug free.  

Do not become tolerant of drugs in you child’s life.  Do not allow your teen from using drugs.  Drug effects on a child and drug effects on a teenager will change their life.  Do not allow the effects of drugs on teens to determine their lives for them.

Hear Ginger's courage to speak when she brings her substance abuse story to life.  Her son's teenage drug abuse story is now being spread in substance abuse prevention presentations in the Connecticut, New york, and New Jersey area.

Booking substance use prevention presentations is easy.  Just follow the booking a presentation instructions further up the page.
