Free Parent Education Evening:
Wednesday, 4/22 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. What Every Parent Needs to Know About Drug and Alcohol Abuse! with Author of Bringing Your Teen Back From the Brink Will Wooton, CADC II @ Bernardo Heights Middle | SEE FLYER
“Teens in every community and school environment are increasingly exposed to drugs – ever more powerful drugs – at younger and younger ages. No neighborhood, school, or income level is immune. In fact, upscale communities are sometimes more prone to the problem because where there’s money, the drug dealers follow. And today’s media, especially the Internet, is an endless source of information on drugs – even glorifying their use.”
