8:00-8:30, Teen Replica Room open for viewing
The Teen Replica Room is also known as the Wake-Up Call Room, a real-life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The bedroom identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. Our goal is to educate parents and other adults who are influential in the lives of youth so they know what seemingly innocent items can actually be an indication of substance abuse.
Dr Fidlin, Psy.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been serving the needs of children, adolescents, adults, and families in the Midwest for the past 20 years. He will share a presentation on the teenage brain and how it reacts to substance misuse.
The Teen Replica Room will be open for viewing for 30 minutes following the presentation.
