NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The next event in the Parent Wellness Series will be presented in the New Providence High School Auditorium at 7 p.m. On March 15. This is the second year of the program developed by the Superintendents and Student Assistance Counselors (SAC) of Summit, Chatham, Millburn, Berkeley Heights, and New Providence. They entered into a consortium committed to offering programs to families that focus on student needs in our communities. Each district will host an awareness forum as part of the Parent Wellness Series: What You Need To Know at their respective high school and invite members of each of the participating communities to attend.  

The New Providence event, Danger in Your Medicine Cabinet: What Every Parent Needs to Know, will be on March 15 at 7 p.m. in the New Providence High School Auditorium.  Parents will have the opportunity to watch a video presentation spotlighting the rapid and dangerous path of addiction followed by a panel discussion with experts in the field.  Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about what to look for with respect to their children, as well as the dangers surrounding current drug trends with a specific focus on prescription medications and heroin.
