Parents gathered to hear from law enforcement and youth development experts on how to protect their kids from the dangers of smoking, vaping, alcohol use and opioids at a round table held at the Greek Orthodox Church in Southampton on Tuesday May 14, 2019. The conference was sponsored by the Southampton Addiction and Recovery Committee, which was formed to help the community reduce substance abuse and end the Opioid Crisis.   

The conference was scheduled before heading into the summer months and school break, which experts say can be one of the most difficult times of the year to monitor kids. Parents were given tips on how to reinforce the no tolerance stance and what signs to look for that indicate their child may be using drugs.  Kym Laube, the Executive Director of HUGS and Southampton Town Police Chief Steven Skyrnecki were among the featured speakers.   

“We want parents to have reliable information before the summer when dangerous behaviors by youth often escalate,” said Southampton Youth Bureau Director Nancy Lynott, co-chair of the Addiction and Recovery
Committee.   

 Parents were given resource kits to bring back to their schools to share with otherparents.
