Hidden In Plain Sight: E-Cigarettes & Other Drugs
72 West 9th Street
Fond du Lac
Parents, guardians, educators, grandparents and community members are invited to join Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County (DFC) on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 for the FREE event, Hidden in Plain Sight: E-Cigarettes & Other Drugs-What Every Adult Should Know. The event will be held at Goodrich Little Theater, 72 W. 9th Street, Fond du Lac, WI. The presentation will be from 6:00-7:30pm. Within the last year, DFC has provided this presentation to local communities throughout FDL County. This presentation will differ slightly from past events, with special focus on E-Cigarettes. This presentation is brought to you in partnership with FDL County Tobacco Prevention and Control Program, FDL Police Department, Aurora HealthCare and the FDL School District.
The presentation is for adults only (21 years of age and older). The goal of the presentation is to educate adults who are influential in the lives of youth. The presentation will provide an in-depth view of vaping devices, solutions being used in the devices, health related concerns including the severe lung outbreaks and deaths, as well as easy access to these products. The FDL Police Department will also highlight items in a mock bedroom set up on stage and discuss how seemingly innocent items can actually be an indication of substance abuse. In addition to learning about the various hiding spots and items that may indicate use, audience members will learn prevention strategies, and steps in helping children, students, patients, clients, families, friends or coworkers receive the necessary help. There will also be an opportunity for participants to ask questions and get a closer look at the items located in the bedroom.
Hidden in Plain Sight: What Every Adult Should Know is a life size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The exhibit identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use.
