Parenting Adolescents with Substance Misuse – with Joe Slattery
May 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
This talk will focus on why drugs are attractive to young people.
Why do some young people use substances without long term effects while for others there are more serious consequences?
The talk will include tips on how family members and parents can help support a loved one who is using substances, including the importance of self-care for all involved.
Joe will give his own experience of growing up in a socially deprived area of Limerick and how the struggles of living in that environment might have a negative impact on a young person’s outlook on life and their future.
Joe will also share what he has learned during the past ten years of working with young people and their families.
