On April 19, 2016, District Forum’s public event focused on drug awareness. A presentation was made by Debra Kehoe, the executive director of the Alliance for Safe & Drug-Free
Children. Additionally, several recovering young adults from Teen Challenge Western PA shared their experiences as recovering heroin addicts.
The Alliance is a local organization dedicated to stopping drug use among our youth by: linking various groups of people in partnerships; creating self-reliance rather than dependency; providing support to youth drug victims and their families; and raising public awareness about the consequences of drug use.
