    • Professor Judith Grisel & Distinguished Panel present Stories of Hope: From Addict to Neuroscientist. Thurs., Apr. 4 @ 7:00 - 8:30 pm. Free. Substance abuse is a major public health crisis that affects everyone, and the teen years pose some of the most difficult challenges. Teens may feel angry, anxious, or moody and test personal boundaries like trying potentially harmful substances due to a need to relieve stress, peer pressure, curiosity, trying to emulate adult behavior, because it feels good, or because it is easy to obtain. It is difficult to know which teens will merely try alcohol, marijuana, tobacco and other drugs and which teens may potentially develop a dependency. Help lower the chances of putting your teen in potentially harmful situations by getting educated. We have gathered a distinguished panel who will provide accurate information to break through the awareness and communication gap. How parents respond can make all the difference in having a healthy or destructive relationship.
