Huffing: The Latest Facts About Inhalent Abuse

In Local News on May 6, 2009 at 7:48 am

Our partner, the MAIN Team, is hosting a community forum about huffing at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 13, at the Washington Community Building at Eastside Park. There will be a video presentation, and guest speaker Kim Manlove with the Indiana Division of Mental Helath and Addiction will offer a personal testimony on the devastation of huffing.

This event is free, and refreshments and door prizes will be provided. MAIN Team members will also provide educational material about how to talk to your kids about the dangers of huffing.

This is a very important forum for teachers, parents, and anyone who works with children because children don’t often think of huffing as dangerous, often turning to it as a “safe” alternative to other drugs. But it is both addictive and deadly.
