Beyond Academics: A Conversation about Substance Use for Parents and Teens

November 15, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Hosted by Loudoun County Public Schools

We invite teens and parents to a shared workshop experience. The workshop will begin with a
powerful personal story of recovery from speaker Sam Lucania. From Sam’s website, “Sam Anthony
is a person in long term recovery from substance use disorder, who uses his personal experiences
with drugs, alcohol, depression, anxiety, and suicidal behavior to educate and motivate others.
He has passionately shared his story with thousands of high school and college students, health
care professionals, and government officials through motivational speaking, panel discussions, and
personal testimonials. Sam’s message emphasizes awareness and encouragement.”
Following Sam’s presentation, parents and teens will participate in small group discussions led by
Student Assistance Specialists to learn how to navigate conversations with their loved ones about
substance use and mental health.
