FOR PARENTS

Figuring out if your child is using drugs or alcohol may pose a challenge. Many of the very early signs and symptoms could just be typical teen or young adult behavior. Our resources aim to help you navigate this challenging time.

SUBSTANCES

View information on the commonly used substances by teens: Alcohol, Marijuana, Nicotine, and Opioids. We provide information on the effects of substance use as well as signs and symptoms.

FIND HELP

A Message from the Will County Sheriff

Hidden In Plain Sight Trailer

The “Hidden in Plain Sight” program offers adults an insight into what your child may be hiding in their rooms. This hands-on learning opportunity focuses on alcohol and tobacco use to current trends in the abuse of other drugs such as cannabis synthetic and “designer” drugs, opiates, cocaine, amphetamine-type stimulants, hallucinogens, and prescription drugs.

During this program which is geared for parents, guardians, or other concerned adults, participants are given time to inspect a mock-up of a typical teenagers bedroom. Following the inspection, a presenter discloses the different articles and their significance.
