Life-Size Exhibit of Teen Bedroom with signs of drug and alcohol use at Central High School March 12

A presentation including a unique life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use will come to Central High School on Tuesday, March 12, from 6:30-8 p.m.

This is a a special Wake Up Call presentation.

A resource fair will be held prior to the event from 6-6:30 p.m. This educational opportunity is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Central High School District of Westosha and Your Choice to Live, Inc. “Our goal is to educate parents and other adults who are influential in the lives of youth so they know what seemingly innocent items can actually be an indication of substance abuse,” says Sandi Lybert, founder of Your Choice and Wake Up Call presenter.

Participants will learn the signs and symptoms associated with substance use as well as current drug trends, specifically in relation to the growing prevalence of vaping among teenagers; receive a guided tour of the bedroom along with a description of items used to conceal substance use; learn parenting strategies to help prevent substance use; receive a comprehensive resource handbook and receive an opportunity to go through the bedroom and ask questions. Parents, grandparents, educators, and community members are encouraged to attend this presentation to learn how to identify possible substance use/abuse. With teen drug and alcohol use, it’s so important to address it right away before an adolescent’s use escalates into an addiction or leads to other risky behavior. This is an educational opportunity for adults only (21 years of age and over).
