Addiction Awareness Seminar
What is substance abuse? What is the result of substance abuse and what are the risks involved? How can we recognize the warning signs in ourselves and others and understand the consequences of addiction?
Substance abuse education benefits everyone, instills a sense of awareness in our children and helps teens to better understand its full impact. Additionally, awareness can lower the risk of addiction and give us important information to share with friends and family.
Join us on Sunday, August 25, in the Student Center for a preventative seminar designed to teach the basics, create awareness and share vital information about all kinds of substance abuse that leads to the risk of addiction.
Registration is required by Friday, August 23. See the full schedule below.
