"Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do" is a free, ongoing, two-part series. Part 1 provides information on how to recognize and understand adolescent substance abuse. Part 2 provides information on what should and should not be done to help when a teen substance abuse problem is recognized, and concludes with a short talk by a young person in recovery.

The series is presented on the first (part 1) and second (part 2) Tuesday evenings of each month in October and November and from January through June (EXCEPTION: second and third Tuesdays in January 2013 due to New Year’s Day.) Programs will be presented by Dawn Farm and Growth Work therapists specializing in adolescent substance abuse. The program is co-sponsored by Dawn Farm, the Livingston and Washtenaw Regional Coordinated School Health Program Advisory Team, and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System Greenbrook Recovery Center.

All presentations are free and open to the public. The program is targeted primarily to parents and caretakers of teens, but is 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.
