Hidden in Plain Sight
Tue, March 28, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM PDT
Would you see the signs of youth alcohol or drug use in your home? Looks can be very deceiving - especially if you don't know what to look for. Come to a "Hidden in Plain Sight" exhibit and learn what to look for and what to do if you do find something.
The "Hidden in Plain Sight" initiative helps parents spot signs of at-risk behaviors using an interactive display of a teenager's bedroom. After walking through the display, participants will learn more about adolescent development and common signs of substance use provided by professionals of treatment, law enforcement, substance abuse prevention, and other parents.
This exhibit encourages parents to communicate with their children about at-risk behavior that could lead to alcohol or drug disorders. Because a strong parent-teen relationship is the most effective tool to prevent youth substance use.
