"Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do" is a free, ongoing, two part program designed to help people identify alcohol/other drug problems in teens/young adults and take appropriate and effective action to help. Part two of this series will be presented on Tuesday October 11 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the St. Joe's Education Center, 5305 Elliott Drive, Ypsilanti, by Matt Statman, LLMSW, CADC; Dawn Farm therapist and Education Series coordinator. 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.
This two-part series repeats on the first (part one) and second (part two) Tuesdays of October, November, and January through June. Attending part one first will help people understand the content of part two, but people are welcome to attend part two first or to attend just one part. Part 2 focuses on how to help when a teen substance abuse problem is suspected or recognized, and includes a short talk from a young person in recovery from alcohol/other drug addiction.
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.
