What is a Reality Tour?
Reality Tour® is a community-based drug prevention system designed as a single event to engage parents. Often held in the evening or weekend so parents WILL attend. Our system puts parent and child on the same page.
In 2003, Reality Tour Developer Norma Norris wanted to do something about kids becoming addicted to drugs and dying from heroin overdoses in her community of Butler, PA. "I felt parent and child needed to be on the same page with the same information. That information had to be delivered in an engaging manner; it had to be true, emotionally charged and consequence driven." The Reality Tour was only to be a monthly presentation for 3 months in the summer of 2003, but so many parents wanted to attend that they extended through the end of 2003 and have been holding the Butler Reality Tour ever since. By 2004, the Program Model was created so other communities could start Reality Tour and over 30,000 PA residents have attended.
