Community Workshops

These workshops are designed for community audiences in order to present a current and accurate overview of substance abuse issues, why communities should care about it and what they can do about it.  Typically these events are geared toward parents, held in the evening at schools or community centers, and last up to 2 hours. The opening presentation by Carol Falkowski is usually followed by a question and answer discussion with a panel of local professionals from schools, law enforcement, and treatment.
