Dixon Road Elementary has been selected to host a special substance use prevention program called “Drugs Uncovered: What Parents and Other Adults Need to Know.”
Drugs Uncovered is an interactive program that targets parents, caregivers, and adults that work with upper elementary, middle school and high school students. It introduces adults to the current trends regarding alcohol, tobacco and other drugs; health risks associated with adolescent use/abuse; the North Carolina alcohol laws and parental responsibility; and techniques for open communication and dialog with adolescents.
The program will include a tour of a mock teenage bedroom for attendants to uncover 70+ obvious and discreet signs of substance use, and it is being offered by the Poe Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to positively impacting the lives of North Carolina youth through health education.
The event, for adults 18 and older, is scheduled to take place on Friday, Oct. 20th from 6:00pm until 8:00pm in the school’s cafetorium located at 835 Dixon Road, Willow Spring, NC 27592.
