Salem County Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Drug and Alcohol Treatment and Prevention Services and Municipal Alliance will be offering a free interactive substance abuse prevention workshop “Hidden in Plain Sight”. This event will take place on Wednesday, April 17 6pm-8pm at the Salem County Vocational School Gymnasium.
Hidden in Plain Sight is an engaging awareness event for parents, caretakers, educators and youth workers. The workshop will present a closer look on current drug trends and share how to start a conversation with your teen. The program is an interactive exhibit designed to resemble a teenager’s bedroom, with 100 plus items which may be indicative of dangerous and risky behaviors. The audience is given 30 minutes for a “snoop and search” which allows the audience time to walk through and observe the bedroom. Due to the nature of the materials presented, this event is for adults only.
