What to look for in your teen's bedroom

and what to say once you have found it.

Hidden in Plain Sight is a presentation for adults and parents to raise awareness of signs that may point to risky adolescent behaviors. Open to adults only, this program recreates a mock teenagers bedroom (or backpack) that parents, grandparents, educators, caregivers and other adults can explore to identify hidden drug paraphernalia, and warning signs associated with drug or alcohol abuse by a teen. As part of the program, Prevention Specialists guide attendees, explain various substance use trends, and identify signs and symptoms to watch for. Prevention Specialists provide guidance for initiating conversations with teens about substance abuse, and local resource information.
