The Cinnaminson Municipal Alliance will be hosting the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey’s 15 Minute Child Break program at 6 p.m. on Nov. 20 at Cinnaminson High School.

The 15 Minute Child Break is a one-hour multi-media presentation offered by the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey, according to PDFNJ Executive Director Angelo Valente. Valuable information on the importance of the parent or caregiver’s role on substance abuse prevention will be discussed, as well as how to talk to children about drugs, signs of use and abuse to look for, current terminology and trends of use. The presentation is based on New Jersey specific research conducted by the PDFNJ’s Center for Prevention Research.
