MILLBURN, NJ – The Millburn Municipal Alliance Committee is holding its first meeting of the year on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 9:30 a.m. at the Millburn Public Library.

Nancy Kislin LCSW, marriage and family therapist, and MMAC Coordinator Gail Barry will lead a timely and frank discussion about current trends in drug use by students.  Detective Ed de la Fuente will also offer his insight into the problem.

In addition to covering current trends, there will also be a discussion about strategies parents can use to help children make better choices. Reports show an increase in drug and alcohol use among youths in Millburn as well as most local communities. Social pressures may lead young people to do things that they know are dangerous.

From MMAC: “The Millburn Municipal Alliance Committee is a volunteer association, funded predominantly by DEDR & township grants, dedicated to preventing alcohol and drug abuse. Since our mandate from the State of NJ is to focus efforts on prevention, most of our programs are geared toward Millburn’s school-age children. Our organization is comprised of many parent volunteers, representatives from township schools, juvenile police officers, township administrators, local businesses and other service groups in the community.”
