Hidden in Plain Sight

													There is help for parents who may not know their kids are using drugs or alcohol .  There are ways to spot the problem, but adults have to be trained on what to look for.  The “Hidden In Plain Sight” trailer is a program HERO is presenting to show families the importance of detecting drugs and alcohol in their own home.  The inside of the trailer is designed to look like a teenagers bedroom, with ordinary items placed in plain view to show where drugs or alcohol can be hidden.  This educational tool is a great opportunity to educate family members on the importance of keeping a drug free home.   

The “bedroom” shows the warning signs and clues that aim to open parents eyes. What looks like a school textbook, sitting on your child’s desk may be hiding an addiction.   This new tool comes as heroin and opioid use tightens its grip in our communities.  

The 2019 tailer season is finished, and what a busy season it was! Our dedicated volunteers welcomed 1855 visitors in to view the bedroom trailer, and 12,500 people attended the events that we participated in. Altogether, we brought our Hidden in Plain Sight bedroom trailer to 37 different events. 

This year we added a large vape display case, a vaping hoodie, an absorbent beaded bracelet, and a hidden scale used in drug transactions among other items. Almost all of our visitors are completely surprised by what they discover in the trailer.

Again, we are grateful to so many people for making our 2019 trailer season a success as we provided a glimpse into the world of drug use.
