This slidecast is part one of a two-part series.
"Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do" is a free, ongoing, two-part series presented in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Part one provides information about teen substance use, including signs and patterns of a substance use problem. Part Two has break-out sessions for adults to learn strategies to effectively help when adolescent alcohol/other drug use is suspected or identified, and for teens to explore the personal effects of substance use. Part Two ends with adults and young people together hearing a talk by a young person in recovery from a substance use disorder.
Part Two of the series will be uploaded soon to Dawn Farm’s Vimeo channel (vimeo.com/dawnfarm) and Dawn Farm’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/user/OfficialDawnFarm.)
