“Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do” is a free, ongoing, two-part workshop series designed to help participants learn to understand, identify and address adolescent alcohol/other drug problems. Part 1 provides information on how to understand and recognize the signs of a teen substance abuse problem and includes a short video. Part 2 provides information on what should and should not be done when a teen substance abuse problem is recognized. Part 2 includes a recovering teen speaker.

The series is presented on the first (part 1) and second (part 2) Tuesday evenings of each month from October – June. The workshops are presented by Ronald E. Harrison, SW. Ron is a social worker with over 30 years of experience working in diverse settings with substance-involved teens and their families, and in presenting education and training programs on teen substance use, addiction and family issues. The program is co-sponsored by Dawn Farm, the Livingston and Washtenaw Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Consortium, and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System Mission Services.

All presentations are free and open to the public. The presentations are targeted primarily to parents and caretakers of teens, but are also inclusive of teens, family members, people who work with teens, students, and anyone interested in attending for any reason. All are welcome to attend! Registration is not required. A certificate of attendance can be provided. Free literature will be available.
