The Prescription Drug Action Team and SPAN, with the help of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham, teamed up to provide a 21-and-over interactive display for the community. The event consisted of community members viewing a set-up of a teenager's bedroom in order for parents to learn how to spot signs of at-risk behavior in their teen. With the combination of a interactive tour and community education, the display encouraged parents to talk to their teen about the dangers of substance use. This display was brought to Needham with the help of South Shore Hospital.
