Parents invited to anti-drug event at ORR
Mattapoisett — Old Rochester Regional High School will host an interactive anti-drug event targeting parent awareness titled “Hidden in Plain Sight.”
The display is a mock teenage bedroom that is designed to raise awareness about the signs of addiction or drug use a parent might or might not notice in their child’s room. The items in the room can range from alcohol, tobacco and marijuana related paraphernalia to items associated with prescription drug and heroin use. The “Hidden in Plain Sight” initiative will assist parents in spotting signs of at-risk behaviors.
The display will be staffed by volunteers from the district attorney’s office and community. The volunteers, through the use of the interactive display, will teach parents to see the signs of hidden substance abuse.
The exhibit will be open to adults in the community from 4:30-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27. While housed at ORR, this is a community-wide opportunity.
