[ARCHIVED] Community Drug Forum in Belle Vernon April 9th

Many teens think prescription drugs are safe because they were prescribed by a doctor.
But taking them for nonmedical use to get high or “self-medicate” can bejust as dangerous and addictive as taking illegal street drugs.

Join us on Wednesday, April 9 at 6:00pm at Belle Vernon Area High School Auditorium for a community meeting at 425 Crest Avenue, Belle Vernon, PA 15012.

• What is happening in your community
• Medication street names
• Signs and symptoms of abuse
• Real life stories
• What is being done to control it
• Where to get help
• Where the drugs are coming from

Special Presentations by:
• David Hickton, U.S. Attorney
• Yesh Navalgund, MD - DNA Advanced Pain
