Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do

Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do

Young people making decisions about using substances are faced with conflicting, confusing and often inaccurate information from questionable sources to guide them. Parents face similar difficulty in communicating with their children about substance use and determining what limits to set and how to respond if their child may be using substances. Where can families get accurate, reliable information to help with these decisions?

“Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do” is a free, ongoing, two-part education series that provides helpful, hopeful, practical information for young people and adults. Part One provides information on how teens are affected by substance use. Part Two includes separate sessions for adults to learn “what to do” when an adolescent substance use problem is suspected or identified, and for teens to explore their beliefs about and use of substances; adults and teens also hear a talk by a young person in recovery from a substance disorder. Parents, other family members, teens, students and people who work with teens are all welcome, and families are encouraged to attend together if they would like to.

The “Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do” series is sponsored by Dawn Farm, and co-sponsored by the Ann Arbor Public Schools, St. Joseph Mercy Greenbrook Recovery Center, and the WISD/LESA Health Educators’ Learning Network (supporting and advocating for Whole School, Whole Community, and the Whole Child Approach-WSCC.) The programs are presented by Dawn Farm Youth and Family Services therapists.

Dates/time: The programs will be presented from 6:00 to 7:30 PM on Tuesday October 1 (part one, What To Know) and Tuesday October 8 (part two, What To Do.) The series repeats on the first and second Tuesdays of October, November, and January through June. The October programs will kick-off the 2019-2020 series – the twenty first year this resource has been offered free to our community!

Location: Programs are held at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center, 5305 Elliott Drive, Ypsilanti; in the Exhibition Room on the first floor.

Cost/registration/other details: The series is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Free literature about alcohol/other drugs and teens is also provided.
