Teenage Alcohol, Drug Addiction Will Be Discussed at Community Center

The Freeholder Board will sponsor an event for adults at the Cranford Community Center that focuses on the family dynamic of alcohol and drug addiction.

The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders welcomes residents to attend “Adolescent Trends: For Adults Only,” the third in a series of free seminars addressing the family dynamics of alcohol and drug addiction, prevention and treatment. The seminar is scheduled for Oct. 17, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Ave. in Cranford.

The seminar will be conducted by John Kriger, a professional alcohol and drug counselor who has worked with government agencies, colleges, school districts, corporations and non-profits. Mr. Kriger is the author of "The Pond: A Small Book About Big Changes."

The series is funded by the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse through the Municipal Alliance, and coordinated by the Union County Department of Human Services.  For information call Union County Alliance Coordinator Deborah LaNier, Union County Department of Human Services, Division of Planning, 908-527-4852.

This is a really great thing that the community has put up. I hope our community does have one like this too. It is really important to discuss and let the parents and teenagers be aware of this addiction. Because this has been almost always the problem of every teenager and also the family.
