The following information is provided by the Tewksbury Police Department:
As part of Tewksbury Drug Awareness Week, the Tewksbury Police Department feels that it is not only important to target the student population during this week but also their parents and all residents of Tewksbury and the surrounding communities.
Therefore, the Police Department will be sponsoring a Drug Awareness Night at Tewksbury Memorial High School on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m.. Here we will discuss the signs and symptoms of drug abuse, how students are obtaining drugs and how to get help.
Those in attendance will hear from Jodi Barber, a mother determined to educate as many parents as possible about the dangers of drug addiction.
