Spring is a very high risk period for teen alcohol and other drug use, and adults must be aware of the consequences of youth decisions made under the influence. Parents must also understand that when they turn the other cheek to alcohol use, children often look for another boundary to push. Too many teens are now learning social, studying, communication and coping skills under the influence. We owe these “adults under construction” our attention.
Be a part of the discussion and the solution. Learn practical suggestions to encourage healthy and safe behavior among teens. Join us for this panel discussion and Q&A session. Panelists include a former Rockwood student whose life was turned upside down on Prom night, Jenny Armbruster, Regional Support Center Coordinator of the National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse, Melinda Gorman, defense attorney who works with youth and families on drug and alcohol offenses and others.
At The Pointe at Ballwin Commons. 7-8:30 p.m. To register for this free program call Renee Heney at 636-733-2136 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
