MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WAOW)– A display in Marshfield gave community members the opportunity to see if they can identify signs of substance abuse.
‘Hidden in Plain Sight’ is a program through the Wood County Drug Task Force, the display is of a teenager’s bedroom and allows the parents and guardians to learn how to start a meaningful conversation with their children.
One thing officials say is trust your instinct if anything seems out of the ordinary.
“Again it changes everyday so there’s so many things you might know one minute and you don’t know the next minute. So any chance we can to see you know kids are learning you know and they’re learning new things and they’re finding new ways to hide things so any chance we can to keep up with it that’s great,” said Jackie Carattini with the UW-Madison division of Extension in Wood County.
