Action Family Counseling substance abuse experts and local teens in recovery will share personal stories and information that every Santa Clarita Valley family needs to know. Find out the answer to questions: Where does it come from, where it is hidden, what does it look like, what are the signs of drug use, and what can a loved one do to help. “Teen experts will be the first to tell you, if you suspect that your teen is using drugs, most likely, they are.” Click here to learn more about Action Family Counseling and this event.
