This program features a mock search designed for teachers, coaches, counselors, administrators, and other professionals working with students to help them identify signs of vaping and possible substance use. Some students will go to great lengths to cover up substance use and to conceal illegal substances they slip into school. The goal of this presentation is to provide education and awareness to educators regarding current vaping and alcohol/drug trends.
