A town hall on substance use disorder in Arlington addresses the ways in which teenagers and young adults will hide drugs and alcohol. The Arlington Country Police share the homemade flasks that they have found and share a list of 7 surprising places drugs and alcohol are typically hidden.
Ginny Atwood Lovitt shared her brother’s story with the parents present at the town hall, “All parents need to be in contact with their kids and each other. Be nosey. Your kid’s not gonna like it, but if it keeps them alive, it’s definitely worth it,” said Atwood.
