This programming is co-sponsored by

Alamance Citizens for a Drug Free Community, Alamance County Health Department, Cardinal Innovations Healthcare, and Alamance Community College

Other community partners and organizations will be present. 

The Poe Center’s DRUGS UNCOVERED explores the teenage alcohol, tobacco, and other drug culture of today. The two hour workshop combines a lecture-style format with an interactive, traveling exhibit. At approximately 20’ X 20’, the Poe Center’s “Teenager of Today’s Bedroom” holds over 70 references to substances that include elements of pop culture and common and not-so-common hiding places for alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.

Participants will learn about trends in substance use and ways to communicate effectively with children and teens about these issues. All attendees will also receive free materials, including resources to educate young people about being drug-free and alcohol-free.

Parents and adults who work with elementary, middle and high school students are strongly encouraged to participate! The Drugs Uncovered program is for ADULTS ONLY!
