Come experience a teenage bedroom and learn to recognize the hidden signs of alcohol, drugs, or other risky behavior your teen may be involved with.

The SAFIR Coalition in partnership with Indian River Shores Police Department wants all parents to know these hidden signs. Our workshop includes a staged bedroom with items to see where illegal substances can be easily hidden (in plain sight).

Raffle tickets will be given to all that attend for a chance to win a free TV! Courtesy of Jetson Appliances.

News Release

VERO BEACH -The SAFIR (Substance Abuse Free Indian River) Coalition has held another successful “sticker shock” initiative in Indian River County. With the help of the Vero Beach police department, the Indian River County Explorers and the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office, red and green stickers were placed in various convenience stores around Vero Beach to deter the purchase of alcohol for minors. The stickers contain the message “Providing Alcohol to Minors is Illegal! Fines are up to $1,000 and/or up to one year in jail.” The SAFIR Coalition hopes these stickers will have a lasting impact on deterring adults from purchasing alcohol for minors.

Providing or allowing minors to consume alcohol is more than just unsafe; it is illegal. SAFIR partners with the community to teach adults and teenagers about the dangers and consequences of buying for minors and just how dangerous it can be, for both themselves and the minors involved.

SAFIR Coalition aims to combat substance use among Indian River County youth.  Through campaigns like “Sticker Shock,” the goal is to educate and bring awareness to underage drinking in Indian River county.
