Description

Let’s Talk About It!
A discussion of the new book by David and Nic Sheff, High: Everything You Want to Know About Drugs, Alcohol, and Addiction.

How does substance abuse impact individuals, families and our community?

Marin Healthy Youth Partnerships invites you to a discussion of High: Everything You Want to Know About Drugs, Alcohol, and Addiction, the new book about drugs, alcohol, and addiction by David and Nic Sheff. High is a quick read and provides reliable information on drugs and alcohol so teens and parents can make educated decisions. In addition to information about drugs, High gives readers strategies to deal with the stress and peer pressure that may lead to drug use. It also serves to raise awareness and create more empathy for those who struggle with substance use disorder and mental health diagnoses.

The discussion will be facilitated by Heather Johnson who is a licensed psychotherapist, success coach and Mill Valley mother of teens. Heather is an adolescent substance use counselor at Huckleberry Youth Programs in San Rafael and also has a private practice in Marin.

Parents and youth of all ages are welcome to join the conversation. The book is targeted for students in middle school and above. Please RSVP so we know how many to expect and please let us know if your plans change.

Copies of the book are available to check out at the Del Mar Middle School Library, the Belvedere-Tiburon Library and at other libraries throughout Marin County.
