MOUNT VERNON — The Knox Substance Abuse Action Team (KSAAT) continues to offer Hidden In Plain Sight presentations during April and May.

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.

Hidden In Plain Sight presentations are free and there is no pre-registration. The presentations are for adults only. Upcoming presentations include:

•Thursday, at 6:30 p.m., Homer Public Library, 385 South St., Homer.

•Monday, April 24, at 6:30 p.m., Columbia Elementary, 150 Columbus Road, Mount Vernon.

•Thursday, May 11, at 9 a.m., TouchPointe, 120 S Norton St., Mount Vernon.

All presentations are open to the public. If you are interested in hosting a Hidden In Plain Sight presentation for your organization or have questions, contact Ashley Didinger at the Knox County Health Department at 740-392-2200, ext. 2271, or
