An Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention and Identification Program

Would you know what to look for if you suspected your child was using alcohol or other drugs?

Take a walk through our simulated teen bedroom and search for hidden drugs and paraphernalia, while learning about popular concealment methods. Hidden Mischief includes: a presentation about items in the room, signs and symptoms of use, current substance use trends, and what to do if you think your child may be using drugs!

This 90 minute program is FOR ADULTS ONLY!!
