Connecticut's Drug Threat, and Drug Endangered Children - Part 1
TRAINER: MaryKay O'Sullivan
DATE: September 19, 2013
TIME: 9:00 until 12:00 noon
CEUs: Available upon request
DESCRIPTION: There are a wide range of new street drugs being made available to children and adolescents that are more potent and more dangerous than at any time in history. In addition, prescription medications have become the fasting growing classification of drugs being sold illicitly and children and adolescents are one of the largest groups of consumers of these medications.
In this training we will
- explore the variety of prescription medications that are abused and how they are being used,
- identify the new street drugs and their effects upon the user,
- discuss how these new trends effect the behavior, health, and development of child and adolescent users.
