"Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do" is a free, ongoing, two-part education program designed to help participants learn to understand, identify and address adolescent alcohol/other drug problems. Part 1 provides information on how to understand and recognize the signs of a teen substance abuse problem. Part Two will include separate break-out sessions for adults to learn what they can do to help when a teen substance abuse problem is suspected or identified, and for teens to explore the personal effects of and their beliefs about substance use. Part two will also include a talk by a young person in recovery from addiction. The series is organized by Dawn Farm and co-sponsored by the Ann Arbor Public Schools, the Livingston and Washtenaw Regional Coordinated School Health Program Advisory Team and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System Greenbrook Recovery Center. The programs are presented by Dawn Farm Youth and Family Services therapists. The presentations are targeted primarily to parents and caretakers of teens, but are also inclusive of teens, family members, people who work with teens, students, and anyone interested in attending for any reason. All are welcome to attend! All programs are free and open to all. Registration is not required. A certificate to document attendance can be provided on request.
