CHATHAM, NJ - Providing keys to recognize the signs of teen substance use in the home, the Consortium of Summit, Berkeley Heights, Chatham, Millburn and New Providence School Districts will host 'Hidden in Plain Sight', the next event in the annual Parent Wellness Series. Parents and caregivers of Summit teens are invited to attend the free, interactive drug education program for parents, which will be held January 14 in the auditorium at Chatham High School, beginning at 7 p.m.

The program was originally held in 2017 and is offered again due to positive feedback and community demand.

A mock teenage bedroom will display everyday items that can be indicators of drug use or risky behavior. Attendees will have the opportunity to walk through the simulated room and learn about the paraphernalia that can often be sitting in plain sight. DEA Special Agent Tim McMahon and Madison Police Department Narcotics Detective Ken Shannon will provide parents and caregivers with the latest drug trends and powerful insights on what to look for in a teenager’s space.
