The panel shared what they have learned about the effects of substance use on young people and the toll that it takes on family members who feel powerless to stop the frightening behaviors.

Heather Gregan, LPC, CADC, moderated the panel, which focused on the positive actions we can take as family members, friends, educators, and community members to confront the challenges that drugs and alcohol present to young people in today’s world.

3rdAnnualCFAs always, the panel discussion was followed by breakout conversations, then finished with a Q&A betweenaudience members and the panelists.
