During this interactive session, participants will become familiar with parts of the brain and how they function through engaging and experiential activities. This will lead to exploration of how the disease of addiction manifests and why teens have a heightened vulnerability to the disease during adolescence. Resources will be provided to support meaningful dialogue with teens about addiction and their still developing brains.
