Hidden in Plain Sight!
Hidden in Plain Sight allows parents a unique interactive opportunity to look into a teen’s mock bedroom. The room is full of common household items that could be used to hide or disguise drug, alcohol, tobacco use or other “risky” behaviors.
Please take the time to talk to your teen about the items you see – use this as a way to launch a conversation about substance use among peers. Check it out here!

Talk Early. Talk Often and Listen.
It could be as simple as talking early and talking often. The campaign is organized to educate and empower parents and caregivers to have ongoing conversations with the young people in their lives around drugs and alcohol.
Thanks to Dr. Paul Mangino, Jr, his daughter Sofia, Maureen Gouveia and Izzy Boullier – all coalition members! Credit to SkySabin productions
