Additional Information About This Program

Hidden In Plain Sight simulates a teenager's bedroom, in which we have placed 50 or more items which may be indicators that the teen is using tobacco, alcohol or other drugs, or is engaging in behavior that could lead to such use. Some items are obvious, some are fiendishly clever; some are well-hidden and some are sitting in plain sight.

  • The purpose of the exhibit is to help parents and other adults see the environment with new eyes, to see the warning signs that may be obvious once they are pointed out, and then help them have a conversation with the teen to stop dangerous behaviors before the worst happens - addiction, legal trouble, injury or even death.

The Hidden In Plain Sight exhibit and training is provided at no cost to host organizations in Miami, Darke or Shelby Counties. People can explore the space individually, in groups, or guided by Tri-County Board staff. A variety of educational materials and resources is made available for further information.
