A special adults-only forum presented by the Olentangy Parent Programs Team (PPT) will focus on the challenges for parents in identifying and interacting with teens about drug issues.
Hidden in Plain Sight: A Drug Awareness Seminar for Adults will share with parents and those in young people’s lives the information they need to realize that a problem is present. The evening will include:
- Mock bedroom exhibit set up by Drug-Free Delaware Coalition which shows where drugs and drug paraphernalia are hidden in plain sight – also demonstrates certain clues of drug use that may be in a bedroom.
- Learn how youth are using technology to purchase and abuse drugs right under their parents’ watch.
- Direct engagement with the parents – parents go through the bedroom and try to identify clues of drug use prior to a walk-through with the instructor.
Youth are not permitted to attend this seminar.
