Teens & Substance Abuse - Discussion 3: "The New Normal"
THIS IS OUR THIRD PARENT EDUCATION EVENING
Thursday, April 10 at 7 pm in the College Park HS Library, 201 Viking Drive, Pleasant Hill.
To what extent has recreational drug use become normalized among the student population? The changing attitudes of drug use have gone from a small minority of the population that was a subculture, to gaining a solid position within popular youth culture where attitudes of use are associated with "normal."
Please join Jason Lechner, MFT, and College Park counselor, with a specialty in substance abuse and addiction, to expand on this subject and answer questions on this shift in attitude and how this impacts our youth today. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you at College Park High, and the greater community, so we can provide information and support to our students and families. We encourage you to bring your student(s) and/or friends to the evening as this is open to the community at large. For questions, please contact Deborah Frank, Student Services Coordinator, at: email@example.com or682-7670 x3203. To view the flier, click here.
