    Hiding in Plain Sight

    2pm-3pm ET

    Unfortunately, teens often exhibit some of the riskiest behavior when compared to other age groups. Drug and alcohol use is even further accentuated with peer pressure and the ideation that drugs are becoming decriminalized. In addition to their perception of illegal activity, there are also new technological advancements in the drug and alcohol world, which makes detection by others much harder. This course is designed to educate parents and those working with youth about current drug trends.
