According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, substance use is especially dangerous for adolescents because the brain is still developing. Substance use can cause lasting brain changes and places youth at an increased risk of dependence and addiction.
Youth substance abuse is a problem across all socio-economical, educational and geographical areas. Join us for a community screening of the film Generation Found, a transformative community story about the people of Houston who are fighting to save young people from the leading cause of death of their generation: addiction.
Following the movie screening will be a panel discussion about aspects of youth addiction recovery presented in the film, including recovery high schools, alternative peer groups, and the importance of inclusion and connection with youth dealing with addiction.
