"Parent involvement is key"

The forum, sponsored by the Community Health Council, will feature a range of speakers who say drug abuse starts as early as middle school.
"Middle school is probably one of the most vulnerable times for a young teen because it's a huge shift from elementary to middle school. There's a shift in the structure of the day, and students are functioning more independently - not as coddled (as they might've been)," said Vicky Grauer, a child and adolescent therapist and director of Arbour Counseling Services in Franklin.
"It's a very vulnerable time, and a lot of kids are ill-equipped to handle that transition."

Forum aims to help parents keep kids from getting 'wasted'
