Drugs Uncovered: What Parents and Adults Need to Know

Parents, guardians, educators and counselors are invited to a FREE workshop on drug and alcohol abuse and ways to equip young people with the skills to make healthy choices.

The workshop, “Drugs Uncovered: What Parents and Adults Need to Know”, will be held from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at Foothills Higher Education Center, located at 2128 South Sterling St. Morganton, NC 28655.

This programming is presented by
The Poe Center for Health Education

with support from
Cooperative Extension

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!
