A free community training session offered by the Salem County Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Drug and Alcohol Treatment and Prevention Services – Municipal Alliance Program was well received by community members and prevention professionals who attended.

John Kriger, of Kriger Consulting, presented the interactive workshop in early March at Salem Community College and focused primarily on opiate and marijuana trends, two major issues facing young people today. Attendees learned about the risks and common behaviors associated with substance abuse and the reality of youth exposure.

This training session provided valuable information on what can be done in the home, classroom, and workplace to better identify these issues. The presentation concluded with specific tips for parents to keep open communication with their children and to encourage, empower, and support them.

The next training, Technology Dependence, will take place at Salem Community College on May 8th and will again be provided by John Kriger, of Kriger Consulting.
