Fairfax Parent groups to host discussions on teen alcohol and drug use

Parent groups in Fairfax are hosting a series of talks for parents featuring area teens openly discussing alcohol and drug use among high schoolers on the weekends.

The “Saturday Night in the Suburbs” events will kick off tonight at 7 p.m. at Herndon High School.

The aim is to provide parents with an “eye-opening” view of what teens are up to late at night on the weekends and include discussions about sex, parties, and social media.

Three more events are scheduled this spring, including on March 24 at Woodson High School, April 24 at Madison High School and May 12 at West Springfield High School. All events starty at 7 p.m. The programs are organized by the Unified Prevention Coalition of Fairfax County and are open to adults only.
