The Hatboro-Horsham School District believes that everyone — school officials, students, parents and community members — can play a role in preventing our children from abusing substances.

PA State Representative Todd Stephens is hosting a Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness event.
To educate parents about escalating prescription drug abuse, Rep. Todd Stephens (R-Montgomery) will host an information night to help parents identify the signs of drug use and abuse.
“One in four teenagers report having misused or abused a prescription drug in their lifetime,” Stephens said. “That’s a 33 percent increase from 2008 to 2012. Even more concerning is that four in 10 of these teenagers obtained the drugs from their parents’ medicine cabinet. It is critical parents learn all they can to protect their children.”
The event will take place Monday, April 21st, at 7 p.m., at the Horsham Township Community Center, located at 1025 Horsham Road in Horsham. The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office as well as a forensic toxicologist from NMS Labs will be there to alert parents about increased prescription drug abuse in the community.For more information, call Rep. Stephens’ office at 215-368-5165.
