Posted on: November 7, 2016

Parents will have an interactive, hands-on opportunity to find how drugs can be
“Hidden in Plain Sight”

This Informational Parent Workshop is free to all.  School Personnel and Professionals Welcome!

Special Points of interest:

The most important steps to prevent drug use is...

  • Knowledge 

  • Deep and meaningful social connections

Cigarette smoking and alcohol use are considered the "gateway drugs" to substance abuse.  but did you know that there are many common things that pre-teens and teens might use to get an artificial high?  We are rightly concerned about meth and the heroin epidemic, but let's not overlook these unusual ways that your youth can get hooked on drugs.   

Together with Prevention First, The Addiction Council, Ohio Office of Attorney General and Colerain Police Department on this important topic, parents will have an interactive, hands-on opportunity to find how drugs can be "Hidden in Plain Sight."
