Substance Abuse Prevention Event


Blunt, Bud, Skittles, Spice, Tweak and Skag. Got that? If you do, this drug lingo either has you dreading, hoping and barely coping or just wondering, guessing, and all out worrying.  The Robert Crown Center for Health Education is hosting a substance abuse prevention open house in observance of National Drug Facts Week this Saturday, January 31st, 10am-2pm. The program will include art installations, video screenings, and a variety of informative presentations.  Robert Crown is located at 21 Salt Creek Lane in Hinsdale.
