NORTH READING — The North Reading Police Department and the North Reading Youth Substance Use Prevention Coalition are hosting a free drop-in open house for adults to learn about the red flags of substance use.

The community is welcome to visit North Reading Police Station Community Room on:

• Tuesday, May 31 from 5 p.m.- 7:30 p.m.

• Wednesday, June 1 from 7:30 a.m.- 8:30 a.m.

• Thursday, June 2 from 5 p.m.- 7:30 p.m.

• Friday, June 3 from 7:30 a.m.- 8:30 a.m.

Participants will tour a mock teenager’s bedroom highlighting factors that may indicate substance use, hidden in plain sight.

“We’ll show you all the newest products on the market to hide drugs, what red flags of addiction could look like, and provide resources,” explained Drug-Free Communities Grant Director Amy Luckiewicz.

“This event is appropriate for all families and for adults who have a concern that a loved-one may be struggling. This is all about prevention,” she added.

The program begins on the half hour. Drop-in attendees are welcome, but pre-registration is suggested. Register at and click on “events.”

Although this is an adult-only program, supervised young children may accompany an adult. Free parking is available at NRPD and nearby town parking at the O’Leary Senior Center and Flint Memorial Library. Resources on substance use prevention and treatment will be available.
