The Neurobiology of Addiction

Learn more about recovery resources from the comfort of your own home! Save the date for September 15, and watch over the next few days for details.

Families Talk
Come to Wayne College at 6 p.m. on September 30th for refreshments and a panel discussion about youth asset building in our community. We will discuss specific substance use issues our youth are dealing with as well as some positive efforts our community offers!

This event will focus on the importance of families and communities coming together to create a safe, healthy, supportive environment for the next generation.

Come to Turning Point Coalition's Tailgate Party
Friday, September 17
This event is a good reminder about the importance of spending quality time with your kids doing activities like reading aloud, making crafts, encouraging involvement in school activities, and cheering them on. Building positive assets like family connectedness helps prevent risky behaviors (for example, illegal activity, skipping school, or using substances).
