H-H hosts 'A Conversation About Heroin'

The Hatboro-Horsham School District's “Be A Part of the Conversation” program enables the district to be proactive with a modern-day approach to drug education.
Secret Drug Test's insight:

Heroin has become the drug of choice for many middle and upper class teenagers and young adults. Parents, please talk to your children. Educate yourself about drugs, slang terms, addiction, and the warning signs of substance abuse. 

Do not be ashamed to reach out for help. Your child's life is more important than what anyone may think!
