Programs for Parents and Community Members
Vaping Education for Parents: - NEW!
This 60-minute presentation is similar to the student vaping presentation but more emphasis is placed on what parents can do to prevent their teens from experimenting with these popular substances.
Wake Up Call:
Wake Up Call is a three-part drug and alcohol prevention presentation. The first part of the presentation focuses on current trends such as vaping, marijuana, alcohol and prescription pills. Next, attendees are walked through a life-size teen bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The bedroom identifies spots where drugs can be hidden, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. Lastly, attendees will learn practical prevention strategies to prevent substance abuse and where to go for help if they are concerned.
A mental health component can be added to the Wake Up Call room covering anxiety, depression, self-harm, and other mental health concerns.
Wake Up Call Website: - NEW!
Wake Up Call website
will help parents be one step ahead by learning everyday items that are used by today’s youth to hide or cover up drugs and alcohol. Users over 21 years of age can take the interactive quiz to test their knowledge and learn more about commonly used substances. The website identifies spots where drugs can be hidden, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use.
