BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater-Raritan High School, on Garretson Road, will be hosting "Hidden in Plain Sight," a program to help parents recognize the signs a child might be using drugs or alcohol.
The program will be held April 24 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. There will be a light dinner at 6:30 p.m.
DEA Agent Tim McMahon will speak to parents and students about the signs to look for, and participants will view a mock teen bedroom, and get tips on how to talk to kids about drugs. The program will provide parents with clues from a teen's bedroom to help them determine whether their child might be experimenting with or using drugs or alcohol.
According to a release, room decor, hidden compartments and items to conceal use will be located throughout the simulated teenager room.
The program is sponsored by the Bridgewater Township Police Department, Bridgewater-Raritan Education Association and BRHS Health Education Department.
