Reality Check: Creativity of Retailers
Registration is required!
Parents often overlook everyday items that may indicate that an adolescent is engaging in some form of risky behaviors involving drug-use, and it's not their fault! This event will focus on putting more accountability on the retail stores.
Learn about what undercover products retailers are selling to youth & how to locate new and hidden objects used for drugs in your home.
Join us while we also help bridge the conversational gap between parents and their children in order to help them have the necessary discussions about drug-use.

Attend a 20-30 min presentation
