“Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do” is a free, ongoing, two-part series. Part 1 provides information on how to recognize and understand adolescent substance abuse. Part 2 provides information on what should and should not be done to help when a teen substance abuse problem is suspected, and concludes with a short talk by a young person in recovery.
The series is presented on the first (part 1) and second (part 2) Tuesday evenings of October and November and from January through June, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. The series is co-sponsored by Dawn Farm, the Livingston and Washtenaw Regional Coordinated School Health Program Advisory Team, and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System Greenbrook Recovery Center. Programs will be presented by Dawn Farm Youth and Family Services therapists.
All presentations are free and open to the public. The presentations are targeted primarily to parents and caretakers of teens, but are also inclusive of teens, other family members, people who work with teens, students, and anyone interested in attending for any reason. All are welcome to attend! Registration is not required. A certificate of attendance can be provided. Free literature will be available.
The series is held in the Exhibition Room (ground floor) at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center, 5305 Elliott Drive, Ypsilanti, Michigan 48197.
