About this event

As parents and guardians, you have a significant influence on your child’s decisions. With substance use on the rise, it is now more critical than ever for parents and guardians to educate themselves on the warning signs and risks associated with medication and alcohol misuse among adolescents.

Join us for a unique town hall featuring subject matter experts and a youth panel to learn about tips and strategies on speaking to your children about substance use, how to store and dispose of medications, and how to support high-risk teens at home. Speakers include representatives from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse (NCAPDA), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
