“Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do”

March 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do is a free, ongoing, two-part series inclusive of parents, guardians and caretakers of teens/young adults; teens/young people; other family members; people who work with teens and families; students; and anyone who would like to attend for any reason. It is designed to provide education on how to understand, identify and address adolescent alcohol/other drug use and problems, create a positive attitude towards obtaining help for adolescents with alcohol/other drug problems, and increase participants’ readiness and ability to address adolescent alcohol/other drug use. This program has made a difference to families struggling with teen substance use, and to others who want to help.

Part 1: What to Know

Part One provides information that will help participants understand adolescent substance use, recognize signs and patterns of a teen substance abuse problem, and identify when a teen may be involved with substances and may need help.

Dates: 1st Tuesdays of October, November, and January through June. (see flier)

Time: 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Part 2: What to Do

Part Two has break-out sessions for adults describing strategies to effectively help when adolescent alcohol/other drug use is suspected or identified, and for teens/young people to explore the personal effects of substance use. Part Two ends with adults and young people together hearing a talk by a young person in recovery from a substance use disorder, who will describe his or her experiences – how it was before recovery, what happened, and how it is now.

Dates: 2nd Tuesdays of October, November, and January through June. (see flier)

Time: 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
