Crossroads Partners with Law Enforcement Agencies to bring “Risky Behavior” Program

Did you know that St. Louis has 4 times the rate of the national average of heroin overdoses?

The Crossroads Program partnered with 25 Law Enforcement Agencies to host the program, “Risky Behavior” at Greentree Community Church in Kirkwood on April 23rd. Speakers, Kirkwood Chief Brian Murphy, Ballwin Chief Kevin Scott, DEA Scott Collier and Mike Weiland, informed an audience of parents, educators, healthcare workers, first responders, community leaders and many others about the warning signs of drug and alcohol addiction and how to recognize these warning signs. The “Addiction is Real: Hidden in Plain Site” initiative demonstrated how drugs can easily be concealed in a typical teen’s bedroom and gave tips to parents on how to spot signs of risky behavior in teens.
