Schneck offering teen substance abuse program for parents

The Schneck Foundation in Seymour is offering a program to help parents and caregivers of teens better understand the signs of possible substance abuse.

The foundation, in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Seymour, will present “Hidden in Plain Sight” on Friday, June 9th and Saturday June 10th at the club on North O’Brien Street.

The program simulates a teenager’s bedroom and items have been placed inside that could be indicators that a teen is using tobacco, alcohol or drugs, or engaging in other harmful behavior. Organizers say that some of the items are obvious and in plain sight, while others are well hidden.

The presentation will also feature tips on discussing substance use with children.

The program is free. It will be June 9th at 7 p.m. in the evening and at 10 a.m. in the morning on June 10th. Registration is required and seating is limited. The deadline to sign up is June 2nd. You can sign up here:
