Recovery Center raises parent awareness regarding hosting underage drinking parties

SULLIVAN COUNTY — The Recovery Center has launched its “Parents Who Host” marketing campaign in Sullivan County. The message of the campaign is that it is illegal to provide minors with alcohol; that parents should refrain from hosting parties for their teens where alcohol is served; and that anyone wishing to report a party where underage drinking is occurring can call the toll-free number provided.

Since the passage of the county’s Social Host Law, No. 4, in December 2012, the Recovery Center, working in conjunction with Prevention First-NY!, and with the Sullivan County CareCorps Coalition, has worked to educate parents about the ramifications of this law through their many marketing efforts.

To learn more about the law, or for more information on how you can help take a stand against underage drinking within the county, contact Aleta Gomez at 845/794-8080, ext. 170.
