Mr. Bob Faghan of Live Free Recovery will present a drug and alcohol prevention program for youth on Wed., June 18, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Mr. Faghan states, “Did you know that New Hampshire ranks second in the nation for 12-20 year-olds for alcohol consumption and is top ten nationally for 12-17 year-old for illicit drug use? The startling truth is that if you have a child in Junior High, it is likely that they will be exposed to drugs and alcohol.” Mr. Faghan has over fifteen years of experience and will discuss the latest research and effective methods of education. This presentation is free and open to the public.
