The City of Longview, Partners in Prevention will host Teen Drug Trends: What Every Adult Should Know on Monday, Nov. 18. The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Watch UR BAC, from College Station will present two sessions to adults on the topics of Juuling/Vaping, Drug Stash Containers and Drug Clothing/Accessories.
The informational sessions will be held at the East Texas Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse – Fain Williams Room, 708 Glencrest Lane in Longview. The first session will be from 12 – 1:30 p.m., and the second session will be from 6 – 7:30 p.m. and will include a mock bedroom and demonstration of where items might be concealed.
“Representatives from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service presented this information at the Coalition for Drug-Free Youth meeting in August. We knew after hearing this presentation that we needed to bring it back and open it to the public," said Holly Fuller, Partners in Prevention Manager. "Every adult who has a child in their life needs to hear this information and know what to watch for to keep our young people safe. This is not just for parents, but grandparents, mentors, and educators."
Teen Drug Trends is a free event and open to the public. For more information, please call Partners in Prevention at 903-237-1019.
