In Plain Sight Wake Up Call for Parents

On Wednesday night, May 9, the Belleville Area Cares Coalition, along with the School District of Belleville, hosted a "Wake Up Call" for parents. The Your Choice Prevention Education presenters set up a teen bedroom on stage with hidden signs of drug and alcohol use, as well as those "in plain sight." An audience of over 30 was present for a discussion on signs and symptoms and parenting strategies. Those in attendance received a Parent Handbook with facts on alcohol and different drugs and what to look for as indicators of use or abuse.

Thank you to Belleville Cares for sponsoring this event and to all those who attended who are now more informed!
