Marijuana: What Parents Need to Know​

Recent research studies have indicated an increase of marijuana use among teens. Many parents find it difficult to have conversations with their children, but with more potent forms of the drug now available, parents need to have these conversations. This presentation is designed to educate parents and encourage them to communicate to their children the harmful effects of marijuana use and discourage use. This presentation is available in English and Spanish.

Prescriptions, Opioids & Other Drugs

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) not only affects the user, but also their families and their communities. Presentations are developed to educate and encourage communication about the dangers of use and their risks for addiction. They include information on signs and symptoms of use, short-term and long-term health effects, and encourages the audience to seek out treatment, if needed. All presentations can be tailored to fit your audience needs. These presentations are available in English and Spanish.

The program "Hidden in Plain Sight" is designed to educate adults (parents, caregivers, teachers, coaches, etc.) about the latest trends of substance use among youth. The program uses an interactive scenario where a "youth room" is set up with various substance use paraphernalia that have been hidden in plain sight. The goal is to give adults a better understanding of the current trends and that are appealing to youth and how to identify them. Participants will gain knowledge on how to start a conversation with youth about the dangers of substance use and where to seek help if needed.
