Film examines drug abuse by teens
The Philipstown Communities That Care Coalition will screen a 30-minute Partnership for Drug-Free Kids documentary, Breaking Points, at the Haldane School auditorium at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 23.
The film examines the stresses in a young person’s life and how he or she may be coping, including by abusing prescription drugs. The film will be followed by small-group discussions.
The event is for adults only. Representatives from a number of nonprofit and county agencies specializing in child development, mental health and substance misuse prevention will be in attendance, and childcare and refreshments will be provided. RSVP at philipstownctc.org. The film is sponsored by the Lions Club and the Haldane PTA.
The film will be preceded at 6 p.m. by a discussion with Principal Peter Carucci called “Get to Know Haldane High School.”
