A Parent’s Journey: Keys To Successful Vaping Intervention
Are you worried that your teen or their friends are vaping? Do you know what to do when you find the evidence of vaping to create a safe and healthy path to quitting? Local mom Gail Embt will share her parenting journey when teen vaping hit close to home. Gail will share how her family conversations changed from confrontation to cooperation and what steps the family took to break with vaping and change teen behavior.
This free evening event will include presentations from clinicians, substance abuse prevention specialists, and local law enforcement who will be available to answer your questions on how to keep your teen safe and how to intervene if you are dealing with someone who is vaping.
Parents who want to be part of the solution will come away with tools to assess teen risk and intervention approaches from real world experiences. See you on January 23rd!
