The North Carolina Department of Justice is working hard to keep kids safe. Youth today face a variety of challenges โ€“ some that may be familiar to parents and many that simply did not exist in generations past, before fentanyl, cell phones, and social media. To help support parents, caregivers, and people who work with children and youth, NCDOJ launched a webinar series: Protecting the Next Generation of North Carolinians. We invite you to join the upcoming session on Youth Substance Use, in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services: Wednesday, February 28 from 12:00 p.m. โ€“ 12:45 p.m. Speakers include: โ€ข Kelly Crosbie, MSW, LCSW, NC DHHS Director of the Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Use Services (DMHDDSUS) โ€ข Randy Abbott, Parent Advocate; Recovery Resource Advocate, Alcohol/Drug Council of NC โ€ข Jarmichael R. Harris, MS, LCAS, Director of Scholastic Recovery, Addiction Professionals of NC โ€ข Attorney General Josh Stein, NC DOJ This webinar is designed to provide parents, caregivers, grandparents, and others with helpful information and practical tips to help keep NC kids healthy and safe. According to the National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics, in the last month 65,000 (8.14%) North Carolinians aged 12 to 17 report using drugs, and 9.17% report using alcohol. What is more, since their introduction in 2011, rates of youth e-cigarette use in North Carolina have steadily increased, impacting 20.9% of high school students and 6.1% of middle school students in 2019.
