On Tuesday, Dec. 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Chenery Middle School Auditorium, Belmont parent Jasen Boyle will be giving a talk on the health crisis of our time, the prescription opioid epidemic that kills 15,000 Americans per year by overdose and destroys lives and families regardless of family background or economic status. And the time when many are introduced to these drugs is during the middle school years.

Boyle’s presentation – titled “Kids, Teens and Substance Use: Understanding the Risks and How to Respond” – is part of the Belmont After School Enrichment Collaborative’s 4th annual Parent Lecture Series sponsored by Belmont Savings Bank, Belmont Media Center and the Foundation for Belmont Education. 

A licensed private practice mental health therapist who specializes in treating substance use disorders in young adults with additional coaching for families of those struggling with addiction, Boyle’s lecture will focus on helping families understand what puts children at risk, what parents can do to help prevent substance abuse, and strategies to address substance-related problems.
