"Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do" is a free, ongoing, two part program designed to help people learn how to identify alcohol/other drug problems in teens/young adults and take appropriate and effective action to help. Part 1 describes the development of a substance abuse problem and how to recognize when a young person may be harmfully involved with alcohol or other drugs. Part 2 provides information on how to help when a teen substance abuse problem is suspected or recognized. This two-part series repeats on the first (part one) and second (part two) Tuesdays of October, November, and January through June each year (exception: one week later in January 2013 due to New Year’s.) The next part one of this series will be presented on Tuesday November 6, and part two will be presented on Tuesday November 13. The programs are held from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the St. Joe's Hospital Education Center, 5305 Elliott Drive, Ypsilanti. The November series will be presented by Debbra Snyder, MS, LLP, CAADC, CCS; Dawn Farm Program Coordinator for Outpatient and Daybreak Adolescent Programs.
The program is free and open to all; it is targeted to primarily to parents but welcomes other family members, teens, people who work with teens, and anyone interested for any reason. The series is co-sponsored by Dawn Farm, St. Joe’s Greenbrook Recovery Center, and the Livingston and Washtenaw Coordinated School Health Program Regional Team. Registration is not required.
