Free program offers Parental Guidance (PG) for Teens

Wondering what teens in Ridgewood are up to these days? Looking for advice on how to talk to your teens about living a healthy, drug-free life? The Ridgewood Municipal Alliance Committee is offering Ridgewood parents and community members a 1-hour presentation called "PG: Parental Guidance for Teens" on September 21 at 7:00 p.m. at George Washington Middle School.

Information to be covered includes drug trends being seen here in Bergen County, symptoms and availability, and suggestions for how parents can answer tough questions teens might ask will be discussed in an interactive presentation, facilitated by Dee Debernardis of The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources. The program is being offered by the Ridgewood Municipal Alliance Committee with funding from the New Jersey Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and the Ridgewood Municipal Alliance grant.
