Reality Tour is a drug prevention education experience for parents and their children age 10 and up to attend together. Throughout the tour families are shown the consequences of drug use, informed on drug trends and learn family coping skills to stay drug free. Local law enforcement and representatives from the recovery community are interviewed. CANDLE, Inc., the nonprofit that manages Reality Tour is pleased to have 17 replications in Pennsylvania, 8 in other states and 2 in Canada. There has been recent interest in replicating the program from communities in Kansas, Wisconsin, Maryland and Canada.
