Town To Hold Parent Roundtable On Opioids, Vaping And Alcohol Use Among Teens 

The Southampton Town Opioid Addiction and Recovery Committee will sponsor a parent roundtable on the warning signs and what parents can do to prevent the misuse of opioids, alcohol and vaping among local youth. 

The roundtable will be held on Tuesday, May 14th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the Greek Orthodox Church at 111 St. Andrews Road, Southampton, NY, 11968. 

Parents will learn effective parenting strategies and signs of use from the experts.  Kym Laube from HUGS will speak to parents about what “Every parent should know” including guidance for parents from proven strategies based on local data.   A Southampton Town Police Dapartment  representative will offer parents tips about recognizing indicators of use-what to look for, where to look for it and what is currently happening in our community.    There will also be a Narcan demonstration.  Parents will take home resource kits to share with their school community to help safeguard youth from addiction.

“This is a great opportunity for parents of students of all age levels from all of our schools to come together to learn more about preventing youth substance abuse,” said Southampton Youth Bureau Director Nancy Lynott, co-chair of the Southampton Town Opioid Addiction and Recovery Committee.  “We have had public forums before for the general public, for the medical community and for young people, but this is the first forum designed just for parents.  We hope this gives them the tools they need to keep children and the youth in our community safe from dangerous substance use behaviors.”  

Dinner will be included in the forum, and RSVP is required by emailing cconway@southamptontownny.gov  .
