ADAP sponsers Michael Fowlin as Spring Speaker at Weston High School

“Your pain is your gift,” actor and psychologist Michael Fowlin told Weston High School students recently.

“I would say in this community you’re told not to acknowledge your pain,” Fowlin said. “Most of you here wear a mask.”

Fowlin spoke to the students on April 7 in a talk sponsored by the Alcohol Drug and Awareness Program (ADAP) through a grant from the Mid-Fairfield Substance Abuse Coalition. The coalition has designated ADAP of Weston, a non-profit, as its Local Prevention Council.

ADAP’s Board sent in this reply to the Weston Forum:

Letter to the Editor. April 7

With a recent survey showing increased use of marijuana and alcohol among older teens in Weston, we want parents to know about an important resource available to help students cope with peer pressure and other issues, including drug and alcohol use. Westons Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program runs a youth group, in which students in grades 9 through 12 meet once a month with a trained youth coordinator.

Here’s what one parent had to say about it in a note to the ADAP board: By involving teens seriously in difficult discussions, ADAP’s able to cut through a lot of the cynicism and mistrust kids often have for the advice adults give them, said Francis Phillips, whose daughter is a member of Westons Youth Leadership Council, ADAPs youth group.

Andrew Katz, who is now a college freshman and a former co-president of ADAP, wrote this about his experience: Exchanging viewpoints with the group has strongly impacted the choices I have made in the pressure-filled world that is high school. We are not an abstinence group; however, we do promote healthy choices.
