The Armstrong-Indiana-Clarion Drug and Alcohol Commission is making a scene at Apollo-Ridge, all in the hopes of educating the public about drug use.

The Teen Scene program, billed as “an adult resource for teen drug trends” will take place at 6 p.m. Jan. 21 at the Apollo-Ridge Middle School auditorium.

Teen Scene is a “mock bedroom” program designed to educate adults about signs and symptoms of drug use, current drug trends and resources available to prevent drug use and intervene if it is suspected.

As the name implies, the program will include a bedroom display. Participants will walk through the scene and learn about more than 50 different objects indicating potential drug use that could be found in a teen’s bedroom.

The program is free and open to the public. Anyone can go, regardless of whether they are Apollo-Ridge School District residents. There’s just one exception: Organizers advise that students and other children not attend.
