This video is part two 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. This video filmed the adult break-out session; the breakout session with the teens was not filmed or recorded to protect privacy and confidentiality of participants.
