[ARCHIVED] Hidden in Plain Sight: Help Prevent Youth Substance Abuse

Would you see the signs of youth alcohol or drug use in your home? Looks can be very deceiving — especially if you don't know what to look for.

Come to a "Hidden in Plain Sight" exhibit and learn what to look for and what to do if you do find something.

The free, parent-only event is 6:30-8:30 p.m. March 28, 2017, at Liberty High School, 16655 S.E. 136th St., Renton. RSVP online.

The "Hidden in Plain Sight" initiative helps parents spot signs of at-risk behaviors using an interactive display of a teenager's bedroom. After walking through the display, participants will learn more about adolescent development and common signs of substance use provided by professionals in treatment, law enforcement, substance abuse prevention and other parents.

This exhibit encourages parents to communicate with their children about at-risk behavior that could lead to alcohol or drug disorders. Because a strong parent-teen relationship is the most effective tool to prevent youth substance use.

The event is presented by the Issaquah Schools Foundation, Influence the Choice, Friends of Youth, Issaquah PTSA Council, ParentWiser, Issaquah Police Department, Sammamish Police Department, City of Sammamish Parks & Recreation and Eastside Fire & Rescue.
