I have been ask again to speak at the "Johnson County Resort."
If you are a long time reader you know why I have renamed the institution. Catch up for those that are new, our son spent many a night at the Johnson County Resort, or aka Johnson County Department of Corrections.
On Tuesday evening I will be speaking this time to juveniles.
Johnson County Department of Corrections has been recognized nationwide because of their new and innovative methods of handling offenders addicted to drugs and alcohol.

The last time I spoke at the Johnson County Resort it was to inmates in the Therapeutic Community, (TC). http://parentsofanaddict.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-johnson-county-resort-talking-to.html
It will be different talking to these young people. Most of the time I am talking at schools and my message is more tailored to don't go down this path. This time I will be talking to young people that are already on that path. I am going to say many of the same things but talk more about help and second chances.
If anyone has any suggestions on points you think I should cover that might help a young person.......let me know.
Here is why I continue to talk. http://parentsofanaddict.blogspot.com/2015/11/fight-stigma-talk-to-your-kids.html
