Not My Child... the impact of Synthetic Drugs & Opiates on our Families & Community!!!

Heroin, Opiates, Synthetic Marijuana & Drugs of today are not the same as Drugs of Yesteryear!!! The Problem is here in our community impacting our children, families & neighbors! The drugs of today are laced with an ever changing concoction that makes them significantly more dangerous than the drugs from the 1960- 1990’s. Users can never be sure of the chemical component or the bodies’ reaction to the drug. The “High” and the “Addiction” is constantly changing based on the chemical compound. The synthetic drugs are more addictive than their predecessors. The Drug Dealer of today looks like the neighbor down the street. They are targeting younger buyers in middle school and elementary school. “Stranger Danger” used to mean someone that your child did not know…. Today the drug dealer could be SOMEONE you or your children already know. The “Drug Problem” impacts everyone in the community!!! The addict’s family is not the only victim. Break-ins and robberies are another side effect of the growing Drug Problem.

Guest Speakers: Ginger Rosela from the Coalition of Families, Representatives from Prince George's County Police Department, Tracy Bushee Health Department & Beltsville Volunteer Fire Department. Ginger will share the impact that her son's addiction to heroin had on her son and family.
