Event Details

Free program for teens and parents!

Drugs 101: What Parents Need to Know seeks to educate parents about the various forms of drugs and the peer pressures facing students to use them. A mock bedroom of a teenager serves as the backdrop to the two hour presentation. Parents will enter a mock bedroom that has been set up to resemble a teenage drug user’s room. Parents are asked to identify drug and alcohol paraphernalia items that are placed within the bedroom. Throughout the presentation, more than 80 trendy drug and alcohol indicators will be unveiled to show how some adolescents hide drug and alcohol use from their parents. Throughout the program “live” role playing demonstrations will occur to help parents initiate conversations with their child and to show parents ways they can help their child beat peer pressure.

The Realities of Living with Addiction: Information and knowledge influence our decisions. This event focuses on providing first-hand information to teens to help guide healthy decision-making, in a fun and relaxed format. Teens will quickly rotate between tables/stations with community leaders to get a 'reality check' on how their lives could be affected by addition. Representatives from the coroner's office, police department, probation, drug treatment programs, teen pregnancy, trauma/injury prevention, and mental health will provide a glimpse into the life of an addicted person. (Zeek the drug enforcement dog will be here to tell his story!) Teens who complete the roundtable scavenger hunt will receive a prize. The event will conclude with a short personal presentation from someone that has been through addiction.
