Parent Workshop: Hidden in Plain Sight

Hidden In Plain Sight to be held at Green Hills School, January 6, 2020

 Green Hills School is hosting “Hidden in Plain Sight” on Monday, January 6th at 7:00 pm.  Presented by the Center for Prevention and Counseling, this exhibit and presentation is suitable for parents and other adult community members who work with or care about young people to prevent youth drug misuse.  An exhibit of a teenager’s bedroom will be on display for participants to browse, observe and become familiar with where and how teens might hide drugs or paraphernalia.


Did you recently find a vape in your child’s pocket or read a text about pods and wondering what that’s about? Seemingly “innocent” items commonly used by youth could actually indicate a substance use problem. This awareness presentation will allow adults to be more proactive in helping a young person who might be using alcohol or other drugs. Hear from prevention specialists about local drug trends, how to prevent youth substance use disorders and understand resources available to help keep youth healthy. 



Would you be able to recognize signs of use and intervene before they become impossible to ignore?  Unless you can recognize the signs of alcohol and drug culture, you can’t do anything to counter the harm these substances can cause. This “Hidden in Plain Sight” presentation will equip parents and community members with the knowledge to look past the obvious and become aware of the signs and symptoms of drug misuse. This program is funded by Action Municipal Alliance. For more information please contact Tina at CFPC at (973)383-4787 ext. 239 or email
