Hidden in Plain Sight

Hidden in Plain Sight is a room the coalition offers to set up at various events/locations to inform parents on what drugs or alcohol their child could be experimenting with or using. There are multiple items that are hidden in plain sight throughout the room. Items are hidden as room décor, foods, and concealed in everyday items. The scary part is all items can be purchased online. We at Drug Free Tipton feel it is important for parents to be informed and address problems early in order to prevent negative consequences of using/becoming addicted to drugs or alcohol.
