A Letter From A 15 Year Old About How Substance use and Addiction in Teens Affects the Family

Substance Use and Addiction

Hello,

My name is Ashley Adams and I am a freshman at Glenwood Springs High School. I am reaching out to you to bring up an important and necessary topic where we all need to have a conversation, and this is substance use and addiction in teens and how it affects the family.

On May 20th myself along with mom and others will be guest speakers at an event hosted by Aspen Connect called “A Conversation About Today’s Family and Helping Our Teens.” I will be sharing my story with the audience about being a sibling of a sister enrolling in rehab her senior year of high school, and her recovery. I feel that this is very important to share with others on how addiction affects the entire family and how we are not alone.

I have talked with kids my own age in small group settings. Honestly being transparent, sharing my story with people I don’t know and inviting them into my life is really a huge step for me. I’m nervous but know that this is something that we all need to know.

Bringing Community Together

I would kindly ask you since I am taking this BIG STEP to create an awareness for everyone, will you show your support for all teens by attending this event? This way we can all connect together in making this valley a better place. 

There will be two conversations and many community experts being a part of this conversation.

You can reserved you tickets FREE by April 20th. After that tickets are $15. Below are the details:

Date: May 20th, 2019

Location: Aspen District Theatre

Time: 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
