Learn About Dangerous Trends in Drug Use Facing Youth

A FREE community training session that offers cutting edge insights into the most dangerous and deadly trends in current drug use is being offered by the Salem County Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Drug and Alcohol Services.

This training will focus intensely on two primary issues facing young people today: opiates and marijuana. This training session is ideal for parents, grandparents, counselors, teachers, and administrators. Those attending will learn the risks, behaviors and issues facing parents and professionals in dealing with youth using drugs. Attendees will learn what can be done in the home, classroom, and workplace to better identity drug issues.

Just a few of the questions to be answered in this presentation:

  1. What is Carfentinal and why is it so dangerous?
  2. Are those who use these products at greater risk, and if so why?
  3. What are Budder, Shatter and Dab?
  4. How are people becoming addicted to opiates so quickly and why?
  5. What is Narcan, is it safe and can it actually save someone suffering an overdose?

Registration is encouraged.

“These are challenging times for our communities and families,” said Freeholder Director Bob Vanderslice, who also chairs the Health and Human Services Committee. “I encourage Salem County residents to attend. Becoming educated about the trends in drugs is the first step to help keep our children from substance abuse and addiction.”
