Burlington Drug & Alcohol Task Force - Presenting APPLAUDD in March
The Burlington Drug & Alcohol Task Force, the community's youth substance abuse prevention coalition, and Woburn Memorial High School's LEARN, the school's prevention youth group, are teaming up to present a very special parent prevention workshop in March.
APPLAUDD: A Prevention Program Learning About Underage Drinking & Drugs is a 4-part parent program designed to teach parents of students in grades 5-12 how to reduce the risk of substance abuse.
APPLUDD won a National Service to Science Initiative award by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) and the Center for Sunstance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) in Washington D.C. in 2010 after it was nominated by the MA Department of Public Health.
The Service to Science award is given to a select few local prevention programs in the country that demonstrate promising results as an innovative way to reduce underage drinking and drug abuse.
APPLAUDD will be held on Tuesdays March 8, 15, 22 and 29 at the Marshall Simonds Middle School from 7-9pm.
