The Stoughton Wellness Coalition has created a mobile mock teen bedroom to help educate parents and other caregivers about the hidden signs of drug and alcohol use.
Open to adults only, the mock teen bedroom tests adults’ knowledge of common items that could be substance abuse warnings. A variety of objects are also hidden in the room, giving adults the opportunity to uncover objects that appear
The Hidden in Plain Sight room is a mobile, interactive, educational exhibit of a simulated teen’s bedroom, developed as a community education tool, according to a news release from the Stoughton Wellness Coalition. The room includes a variety of drug and alcohol related materials to help parents and other adults spot and recognize potential signs that a teen may be engaging in drug and/or alcohol use.
Members of the Stoughton Wellness Coalition guide adult participants through exhibits and explain various substance abuse trends, signs and symptoms in an effort to raise awareness and provide supportive resources.
