Did you know that kids who use alcohol and drugs in middle and high school are at a much greater risk of suffering life-long substance abuse addictions later in life? Did you know that underage substance abuse has been linked to the development of adult health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and sleep disorders? Drugs are no joke, and your kids may be at risk. Join us for our next Parent University session on Thursday, January 19 where we will discuss the dangers of underage alcohol and drug abuse. This session will be led by members of the Sandoval County Prevention and Intervention Program and Presbyterian Community Health and will explore how underage drug abuse starts, the dangers that drug abuse means for our kids and communities, and preventative measures you can take to protect your children. Parent U: Understanding the Dangers of Substance Abuse will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel on Thursday, January 19 at 5:30PM. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. We'll see you there! https://www.youtube.com/@RioRanchoPublicSchools-RRPS
