2/22: Rep. Ben Ray Lujan Substance Abuse Prevention Community Workshop
Congressman Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico’s Third District is hosting a Substance Abuse Prevention Community Workshop on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM at the Multi-Purpose Room at Pablo Roybal Elementary School, 1574 State Road 502, in Santa Fe. The workshop will build on the Drug Summit that Luján convened last year, where treatment providers, federal agencies, community leaders, and law enforcement discussed how to fight substance abuse.
Tomorrow’s workshop, which is open to the public, will bring together families, youth and community organizations to discuss substance abuse prevention and community collaboration. The workshop will provide participants with educational material to learn about the signs and symptoms of drug use, preventive measures, and available resources to obtain treatment for drug use.
Presenters at the workshop will include Congressman Luján; Jennifer Weiss, Heroin Awareness Committee; Frank G. Margourilos, New Mexico Prevention Network; and Anamaria Armijo-Glenn, New Mexico Drug Endangered Children Alliance.
