The Sobering Reality:
RAD has partnered with Vroman's Bookstore for a special in-store event to help raise awareness about teen alcohol culture and help prevent alcohol-related incidents among teens in the San Gabriel Valley.
The special in-store event will feature a discussion with experts on the current trends in teen alcohol use, book titles on AOD, and multimedia art created through RAD's Prevention Art Real Talk (PART) Project. Attendees will participate in a discussion with experts about the social pressures to drink that teens experience from social media, popular culture, and their peers. An expert panel including professionals in the alcohol and drug abuse prevention field, authors, medical experts, and youth speakers will address topics and questions such as What are the community and health risks of underage drinking? What factors motivate teens to use alcohol and other drugs? What can parents, families and communities do? The discussion will empower parents with insight into the everyday lives of their teens, and actions they can take to prevent potential substance abuse problems. Parents join us with their teens and be a part of the conversation to prevent alcohol and substance abuse among youth in our community!
