Free Community Awareness Event:

Identifying the Signs of Substance Use in Teens

It's easier than you think for teens to conceal a substance use concern. Methodist College is hosting a free awareness event featuring a mock teen bedroom exhibit that will help parents and community members recognize overlooked items that may be indicators of experimental or regular drug use. Join us from 5:00-7:00pm on Thursday, April 25th to walk through the exhibit and view historical addiction advertisements, followed by networking and a discussion panel with local experts. Drinks and appetizers will be provided.
