Drug Awareness-A Seminar for Parents

with Art Martinez

Sun September 10, 2017 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Drug Awareness-A Seminar for Parents

As your children begin Middle School or High School, you, the parent, need to be well informed of the availability and types of illegal drugs that can possibly be offered to your children in this new environment. The terms “Not my child” or “not in our school” no longer apply in today’s culture. This seminar will enlighten you as to the most common types of illicit drugs that are prevalent in the school environment. From the widely acceptable Marijuana to the deadliest narcotics that have caused several overdoses and deaths in the state of Florida. Many parents whose child fell victim to drug abuse wish they had seen the signs and intervened before it was too late.
This is a free event.
