The Ridgewood Municipal Alliance is continuing efforts to reach out to parents and local organizations to promote teen safety relating to alcohol and substance abuse following an awareness raising campaign started last fall.
The group – consisting of parents, local officials and professional staff from village public safety and medical authorities – has held and funded several events over the past six months, including a visit from Tim Silvestri, a psychologist and substance abuse specialist.
The most recent, a second iteration of the “Parent to Parent” forum last October, was held last week. Parents and group members engaged in a more intimate and personal discussion about the effect of teen drinking on their lives and the lives of their children.
