TOUGHLOVE® International is a non-profit, self-help organization that provides ongoing education and active support to families, empowering parents and young people to accept responsibility for their actions. Our support network strives to make communities safe places to live.

We believe that drug and alcohol abuse, family violence, teen pregnancy, suicide, family dissolution, school drop-outs, and runaways are problems created and maintained by the culture in which we live. It is our goal to change the conditions of the culture by empowering people through TOUGHLOVE community-based self-help programs.

We do not:

  • Advocate or support “throwing kids out.
  • Advocate or support violence against kids or parents.
  • Advocate or support verbal abuse.
  • Offer an instant fix. Your situation took a long time to develop; it will take time to reverse
