Mother and father looking concerned, hugging their daughterParenting in today’s world can be an enormously frightening task. Between the constant barrage of ever changing drug trends and today’s skyrocketing opiate epidemic, it can leave parents and communities feeling overwhelmed.

Please join us on November 28 to learn about current drug trends, how to recognize signs and symptoms of use, and most importantly, how to confront the problem! Learn effective communication techniques for parents, youth and families, and explore collaborative solutions.

The purpose of this forum is to discuss how we can work to change attitudes and eliminate stigma surrounding addiction and mental illness, provide resources and tools, and in turn change the way we fight the war on addiction.

Speakers will include addictions professionals, family members, and community leaders committed to finding solutions and saving lives.

This event is free! However, seating is limited. RSVP to attend!
