The Central Dauphin School District is hosting the Drugs 101 Presentation on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the auditorium of Central Dauphin Middle School.

The Drugs 101 Program is a presentation for parents and students by the Susan Byrnes Health Education Center. This program seeks to educate parents and teens about the various forms of drugs and the peer pressures students’ face.

A mock bedroom of a teenage drug user serves as the backdrop to the two hour presentation. Parents will enter the bedroom and are asked to identify drug and alcohol paraphernalia in the room. Throughout the presentation, more than 80 trendy drug and alcohol indicators will be unveiled to show how some adolescents hide drug and alcohol use from their parents. Throughout the program live role playing demonstrations will occur to help parents initiate conversations with their child and to show parents ways they can help their child beat peer pressure.

While the parents are going through their session, the students will be involved in their own session.  Their session focuses on providing first-hand information to teens to help guide healthy decision-making, in a fun and relaxed format. Students will quickly rotate between tables and stations with community leaders for a ‘reality check’ on how their lives could be affected by addiction.  All students that register and attend the event will receive a certificate for participating.

Pre-register for this event by contacting Shannon Leib, CDSD Director of Public & Community Relations, at 717-545-4703, ext. 217 or
