“Party’s Over: Teen Alcohol Use, Drugs, and the Law”
Reality check: Discover the real story regarding local drug use and the risky behaviors our teens are engaged in. Hear an ex-addict’s story and learn the legal consequences for parents and their teens when the law is broken or stretched. Join our experts from the legal and medical worlds for a straightforward and in-depth discussion about adolescent behaviors with a combination of true- life stories, statistics, and honest answers. We hope to provide parents with the tools to recognize at-risk teens and explain how to intervene before the behaviors lead to more permanent ramifications.
