Drugs 101: What Parents Need to Know

Can you spot the hiding spots for drugs?

Dexter 7-12 grade parents are invited to attend an informative and educational program to learn about the sign, symptoms, and current trends of teen drug use.

This adults-only community program provides both parents and educators with factual information regarding teenage drug and alcohol abuse. It presents current information about drugs, assists in identifying signs of substance abuse and empowers parents to discuss the dangers of drugs with their children.

This program focuses on the signs, symptoms and current trends in the abuse of alcohol, marijuana, ecstasy, methamphetamines, cocaine, heroin, synthetic drugs, prescription drugs, tobacco and inhalants.

A highlight of this 90 minute program is a mock teenager’s bedroom set-up for participants to observe and attempt to identify the obvious and not-so-obvious drug related paraphernalia.

What sets the Drugs 101 program apart from drug education programs like it is a mock bedroom jam packed with drug paraphernalia otherwise known as “indicators”.  Books with pages cut out, a realistic water bottle with a false bottom for hiding drugs, pipes, whip cream cans. Just about every way a teen could hide their stash is represented.  Parents are encouraged to examine the space to see how many indicators they can identify.
