Event to Help Parents Catch Drug Abuse Among Teens

Mock BedroomKentucky State Police Officer Robert Purdy

In their next phase to help prevent alcohol and drug abuse among Anderson County youth, the Saving Our Students Youth Coalition at the Anderson County High School will be hosting a special event to help show parents, guardians, and other adults the signs of drug use in a teen’s bedroom.

Called “Hiding in Plain Sight,” the event will be open to adults only to show signs of possible drug or alcohol abuse within a youth’s bedroom.  Kentucky State Police public relations officer, Robert Purdy, will be highlighting things that appear to be harmless but are actually alcohol or drug related.

Using a mock teen bedroom, parents and guardians will get a chance to physically explore the room, looking for items that indicate risky behavior.  Through the interaction, they will be able to see how drugs and alcohol could be hidden from view.

The SOS coalition, which is sponsored by the Anderson County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy Board, hopes to see increased early intervention, which in turn will help save the lives of teens.  They are passionately working to help prevent drug and alcohol abuse throughout Anderson County.

The event will be held on October 24th from 6:30-8:30 at the Anderson County High School Theater and classroom #26.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Donna Crain Drury at 502-517-1938 or dcdrury@roadrunner.com.
