Know the Truth Announces Fall 2018 Community Forums

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 ottobre 2018

As part of their fall 2018 series, Know the Truth, the substance-use prevention program of Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge, will host three forums designed to educate community leaders, parents and concerned adults about teen substance use. The events will give community members an opportunity to hear firsthand how substance use can affect their families, offer participants a chance to learn more about current substance use trends and signs of use through hands-on experiences with Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge’s interactive exhibit “Cracking the Code on Teen Substance Use,” and provide participants with tools to prevent youth substance use. This is an important need considering the vast majority of Americans who struggle with addiction started smoking, drinking, or using drugs before age 18.The Nicollet County forum, taking place Oct. 3 will also include a simultaneous program for young people from grades seven through twelve, where Know the Truth presenters will share their personal struggles with substance use. This peer-to-peer format allows students to open up and helps Know the Truth bridge the gap between the students and the parents and community leaders who support them.
Additionally, two of the forums – Nicollet County on Oct. 3 and Ramsey County on Nov. 1 – will include a drug take back event. Participants will learn how to safeguard their medicine cabinet and be given the opportunity to properly dispose of any unused or unwanted prescriptions. This is critical because 72 percent of people who misuse prescriptions took them from friends or family.
