The Winona County Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) is hosting a free exhibit titled “Hidden in Plain Sight” to provide information about identifying teen substance use and having conversations with teens. This opportunity will guide parents and guardians through a mock teen bedroom to recognize a number of overlooked household items serving as potential indicators of experimental or regular substance use. The exhibit can be viewed at the Winona Health “Way to Wellness” expo on Saturday, February 25, 2017, at the Winona Middle School. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and only adults will be permitted.
The “Hidden in Plain Sight” exhibit is being offered in response to demand from local parents. “We have had a lot of parents approach us at events telling us they wish they had more information and earlier,” said Phil Huerta, program coordinator. Those interested in attending are encouraged to bring a friend and ask lots of questions. Parents and guardians will be able to learn from local law enforcement, treatment providers, and participants in the Winona County Drug Court program.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 507-474-2727 with any questions. The mission of ASAP is to work together to create a culture free from the misuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs for our youth through community-wide collaboration.
