MOUNT VERNON – The Knox Substance Abuse Action Team (KSAAT) continues to offer Hidden in Plain Sight presentations during March and April. Hidden in Plain Sight is an interactive and informative presentation for adults designed to build their awareness on items they may find in an adolescent’s room, book-bag, closet or car that indicate risky behaviors including drug and alcohol abuse. The presentation features a staged bedroom with 150 items that are hidden in plain sight. Attendees at earlier presentations have indicated an increased awareness in their understanding of items associated with alcohol and other drug use.
