Prevention Services: Hidden In Plain Sight

Saturday, February 15, 2020

Join us for a conversation about substance use in our community. We’ll show you what’s happening through an interactive program where signs of substance use are often “hidden in plain sight.” You’ll walk through a typical teenage bedroom that’s set up with drug paraphernalia “Hidden in Plain Sight.” This interactive display offers insights into current trends in youth substance abuse, drug paraphernalia, and concealment of illicit drugs and alcohol. This will be a safe place to talk with parents and community experts about drug trends, how to talk to youth about alcohol and drugs, and what to do if you suspect a problem. We’ll also share resources available to help you and your family. You’ll leave better informed and equipped to take action, if needed. Addressing problem behavior early is critical to prevent negative consequences of substance use, such as unsafe decisions and addiction.
