"Each year we bring our fifth graders to experience the Adventure Learning Center's alpine tower, giant swing, and team building exercises. They always come back energized, proud, and united! I believe it is one of the best field trips for kids! The staff is always positive, encouraging and totally dedicated to the kids. "

Live Facebook Chat-Partnership For Drug-Free Kids

Partnership for Drug-Free Kids

You’re Invited! LIVE FACEBOOK CHAT on Rx Stimulant Abuse Among Students
Meet the Parents Hour- Alan Schwarz- ADHD Nation- PartnershiJoin us next Tuesday, September 20 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. EDT for a live Facebook chat with Alan Schwarz, former national correspondent for The New York Times and author of the new book A.D.H.D. Nation.

Alan will discuss the prevalence and normalization of teens abusing Rx medications used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) without a prescription. He will also answer your questions and address teen misperceptions about the safety of Rx stimulants taken without a prescription and discuss what should be done to address this dangerous behavior.

“Because the drugs are readily available, they’re coming out of backpacks into the other students’ hands.”

We invite you to submit questions in advance and Alan will do his best to answer them during the chat. Click here to submit your questions to webmail@drugfree.org.

To participate in the chat, please “Like” and visit our Facebook Page at 12:00 p.m. EDT on September 20. The chat will take place right under the announcement image of Alan Schwarz in the comment thread. Please make sure to refresh your browser throughout the chat to view all of the comments in real time and follow the live conversation.
