An Honest Conversation about Substance Abuse in UA

Substance abuse is never easy to talk about. But it continues to be a serious problem throughout Ohio, including Upper Arlington. Open dialog about the problem —who it affects, what causes it, and how to confront it — is an important step toward understanding and prevention.
Join Leadership UA for a moderated panel of community leaders that will:
• Detail the urgency of substance abuse in Upper Arlington
• Explain how local resources are being organized to address the problem
• Offer ideas for proper storage and disposal of prescription drugs, a leading gateway to illicit drugs addiction
• Allow parents and others a chance to ask questions and share input.
Panelists will include Police Chief Brian Quinn, UA High School Principal Andrew Theado, Drug Free Action Alliance Executive Director Marcie Seidel, former UA Mayor David Varda, and UA Assistant City Attorney Thad Boggs. Dr. Brad Mitchell will moderate the discussion.
