Parents, grandparents, guardians and staff are invited to attend Wake Up Call, an eye-opening presentation taking place on Tuesday, March 3rd from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Central High School.
Central District 301 is pleased to bring back this drug awareness presentation featuring a life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The Wake Up Call bedroom identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. The goal of the presentation 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.
In addition to learning about the various hiding spots and items that may indicate use, audience members will learn about the signs and symptoms associated with alcohol and drug abuse, as well as parenting strategies that can help reduce the chances of substance abuse. There will also be an opportunity for participants to ask questions and get a closer look at the items located in the bedroom.
This presentation is for adults only (21 years of age and older). This event is open to anyone in the area and is not restricted to the District 301 community.
Space is limited and registration is required. To register for this free event, please visit: https://wakeupcallcentral.eventbrite.com.
Wake Up Call is provided by Your Choice to Live, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit committed to alcohol and drug prevention, education, intervention and support.
