Wake Up Call Special Presentation Tuesday, February 26, 2019 Kohler Memorial Theater 6:30-8:00 PM

 -  -  5137


Parents, grandparents and community members are invited to attend an eye-opening presentation taking place on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 from 6:30-8:00 PM at Kohler Memorial Theater.  Wake Up Call is provided by Your Choice to Live, Inc. and sponsored by the Kohler School District.  A resource fair will take place prior to the event from 6:00-6:30 PM.

Wake Up Call is a life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 30 “red flags” that can signal drug, alcohol, and E-Cig use. The Wake Up Call 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, alcohol, or E-Cig use. The goal of this presentation 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.

In addition to learning about the various hiding spots and items that may indicate use, audience members will learn about the signs and symptoms associated with alcohol and drug abuse, as well as parenting strategies that can help reduce the chances of substance abuse.  There will also be an opportunity for participants to ask questions and get a closer look at the items located in the bedroom. Participants will also receive a comprehensive resource handbook.

This presentation is for adults only (21 years of age and older).
