Rebroadcast: Marijuana – Parenting for Prevention 2020

Free Webinar: Marijuana - Parenting for Prevention 2020

Parents face more challenges than ever in having effective prevention conversations with their teens around marijuana use. Despite the fact that this drug is more potent than ever, perception of harm is at an all-time low due to legalization, medicinal use and methods of ingesting like vaping and edibles which seem so much easier and more palatable. We can’t give up! In this webinar, we will explore the important role parents play, discuss the landscape of cannabis products our kids may be exposed to, and learn how we can reduce the chances of our teens using.

Presenter Christine Storm has worked as a substance use prevention educator with Caron Treatment Centers since 2004. Over the years she has facilitated prevention and early intervention services in schools and child-serving agencies in the Greater Philadelphia, Washington DC regions and beyond. Christine has developed a reputation as a dynamic presenter who works effectively with a wide variety of student, parent and professional audiences. She has presented on the perils of substance use at many local and national conferences and has represented Caron extensively in the media.

I’m OK, Are You OK?

I'm OK, are you OK?

This forum will be on the topic of Sober Living (Recovery Residences) facilities and homes in NH, and NHCORR’s efforts to accredit these facilities. 

It’s hard enough to find safe, supportive sober living when straight out of treatment and early in recovery. Since mid-March many recovery residences have been facing unique challenges. Reoccurrence of residents condition, unemployment, delays in paying rent, and challenges to the culture and balance of recovery residence communities are emerging. Becoming accredited by NHCORR can help with some of these things (i.e. rental assistance), bus as we are finding, the Covid 19 response is still very challenging to our recovery community, and those providing safe places to live.
