Do you have a teen in your life that is facing the pressures of substance use at school or with their friends? Join us tonight as we partner with law enforcement, health professionals, and young people who have struggled with addiction to learn about warning signs, tools, means of intervention and resources that are available. Please know that this is for any concerned parent or community member, even if your child isn’t facing these pressures now, it may be their friend or peer who is. It’s important that we all come together as a community on this current epidemic.
Along with the presentation, this event will also include 20+ local organizations offering chemical and mental health services, our “Cracking the Code” interactive display of a search and find teen bedroom to see where they often hide their drugs, a K9 demonstration, and a drug take back for any unused or unwanted prescriptions to be safely disposed of.
Free CEU’s available
