Teens Using Drugs: What to Know and What to Do

The “Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do” series is in its eighteenth year of providing helpful, hopeful, practical, applicable information on young people who may be experiencing problems related to alcohol/other drug use. This free, ongoing, two-part series provides critical information and a starting point for further intervention when needed, for families and for professionals who want to help.

Programs are presented on the first (part one) and second (part two) Tuesday evenings of October, November and January through June, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center, 5305 Elliott Drive in Ypsilanti. The series is open to all; reservations are not required. The program is inclusive of parents, other family members, teens, students and people who work with teens – anyone interested in attending is welcome! Parents/guardians, teens and other family members are encouraged to attend together. Part two of the series includes separate break-out sessions for teens and for adults. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request.  

The series is co-sponsored by Dawn Farm, the Ann Arbor Public Schools, the Livingston and Washtenaw Regional Coordinated School Health Network, and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System Greenbrook Recovery Center. Presenters are therapists with 
Dawn Farm Youth and Family Services who specialise in working with substance-involved adolescents and their families.
