Hidden Warning Signs of Addiction – community talk with Dr. Donnie W. Watson
Feb 21 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

There are many signs that a teenager is using drugs, but it can be difficult to tell the difference between experimentation and drug abuse.

Learn how to recognize the signs of addiction from Dr. Donnie W. Watson of the Thelma McMillen Center and how to treat the situation as a family. Hear from Todd Schenasi, a prevention specialist at the Center, who knows the pressures a South Bay teen experiences.

Dr. Watson is the Program Director at the Thelma McMillen Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment at Torrance Memorial, with over 25 years of management experience in directing programs that educate and treat both adolescent and adult substance abusers, and their families.
