Check out these resources:
1--In March, Drug Free Moore County will host a Town Hall meeting on March 29 at 5:30 (watch listings for location) on Underage Drinking.
2--Call the office to inquire about a new prescription drug abuse prevention workshop for teens, parents, and ‘teen influencers’ called Maximizing Your Role as a Teen Influencer: What you can do to help prevent teen Rx drug abuse. It is another good program designed to influence teens regarding the increasing Rx drug abuse. The guide is well done and has a media presentation for use in delivery.
