Villa Holding Lecture On Dangers Of Prescription Drugs In Teens

Villa Academy (5001 NE 50th Street) is holding another free parenting event tonight "Dangers of Prescription Drug Use/Abuse in Teens."

The information says:
The SAMA Foundation (Science of Management of Additions) will be doing an important discussion on the dangers of prescription drug use and abuse impacting both tweens and teens. The home medicine cabinet has become the new drug dealer as these prescription opiates flood the market and put more youth at risk.  
An alarming number of Washington teens abuse prescription medicines –almost 12%. SAMA will provide information to help educate and build awareness of these issues as they continue their mission to find ways to support our youth and help combat this growing trend.
