Parents are invited to learn about teen drug and alcohol abuse at “A Night to Know the Truth” on Thursday, Feb. 19 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Nicollet Junior High, 400 E. 134th St., Burnsville.
Attendees will hear directly from young adults as they share stories of their addiction and recovery, and how they kept their drug use hidden from their parents. Preventional professionals will also be on hand to teach parents about current trends, root causes of addiction and means of intervention.
The event is co-sponsored by the Burnsville Police Department.
