JF&CS Guest Speakers on Addiction: “The Triangle Epidemic”
Mar 26 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The problem of addiction to drugs and alcohol in our community is reaching an epidemic. “The Triangle” of Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Roswell has seen a large growth in the use of heroin and other substance abuse. How can we educate our children about staying safe and saying ‘no’? What are the signs to look out for as our children are in middle school, high school and college? What are the services available to us in the Jewish community, and beyond, for those who may need support? It is no longer an issue we can think of as just happening to other communities.

Please join us for a special program as we welcome speakers from JF&CS on this very important and sensitive topic. Eric Miller, program coordinator of HAMSA (Helping Atlantans Manage Substance Abuse) at JF&CS has a dynamic and personal story of his struggles with drug abuse. Interweaving a story of growing up in the Atlanta Jewish community, he talks about the markers of addictive behavior he has discovered over the years.

Sally Anderson, a Substance Abuse Counselor at JF&CS, will join Eric to share some important information and statistics: How parents can talk with their teens about this ongoing epidemic. How families can receive support from JF&CS should they need it.

The program is free and open to the whole community, and is appropriate for teenagers of all ages.
