What are your teens hiding in their bedrooms?

From flasks camouflaged as soda containers to drug concealing containers and discrete pipes and stickers signifying marijuana use, many teens are hiding their drug and alcohol use in plain sight, public health officials say.

"With sneaky containers like this, it's easy to understand why parents may be unaware that their child could be using drugs and alcohol," the Oneida County Health Department said in a press release. "Unfortunately, technology makes it easy for our teens to access products that help disguise their substance use. Would you like to learn the skills to help you determine whether your child might be experimenting with, or using drugs or alcohol?"

Health officials are planning to hold a free informative session at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22 about the new Street Smarts curriculum for the freshman health class. The session will include a mock "teen bedroom" parents can walk through to learn about what their teens might be hiding in plaint sight. The class will be held in the Rhinelander High School Library.
