The North Kohala Public Library will host “Parenting for Prevention” at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 24. Chris Kelly, founder of Prevention PLUS will offer important educational information about parenting drug free kids in a drug filled world.
This program is for parents, foster parents, guardians, family members, teachers, administrators, coaches, and counselors of all children from elementary school to college age—not just those who are using drugs. It will provide practical information about trends in teenage substance use and abuse. Attendees will learn how to deter experimentation and how to detect and react if use does occur. Kelly will present the most up to date science based information to encourage helathy, sensible choices. The session will conclude with questions and answers.
Kelly has been a substance abuse specialist for more than 20 years. For more information about Kelly and his work go to www.preventionplus.info. Contact the North Kohala Library at 889-6655 for further information on this program or to request special accommodation.
