Parent Speaker Series at Milton High School

The Milton Parent Speaker Series will be presenting “Drug Story Theater”with Dr. Joseph Shrand  on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Charles Winchester Auditorium, Milton High School.  The actors in Drug Story Theater are  teens who are recovering  from substance abuse. Drug Story Theater (DST) takes teens in the early stages of recovery from drugs and alcohol, teaches them improvisational theater, and helps them craft their own unique stories into a play about their seduction of, addiction to and recovery from drugs and alcohol. They then perform this play to middle, high school and college audiences so “the treatment of one becomes the prevention of many.” Incorporating brain science with slides in between scenes, DST teaches how young people get addicted and how the adolescent brain is neurologically wired for addiction.  This is a multi-community event.
