Think nice Jewish kids don’t use drugs?

Would you know how to tell if a friend had a drug addiction?

No one is immune to the skyrocketing drug addiction rates in the US… not even “nice Jewish kids.”

High School parents are invited to participate in this important educational opportunity. Join in an honest conversation about drug addiction in the Jewish community to eradicate the stigma that often prevents treatment. High school students are welcome to attend.
