SAVE THE DATE :    FREE EVENT! Award winning movie followed by a Panel Discussion

SPAN- DS (Substance Prevention & Awareness Network at Dover-Sherborn) invites you to join us for an educational evening on the very real challenges adolescents face as modern technology reshapes their experience with substance abuse. We will be showing a documentary: Screenagers Under The Influence: Addressing Vaping, Drugs, and Alcohol in the Digital Age. This movie offers very helpful advice for families navigating these challenges . It is grounded in teens’ real-life experiences and also lifts up the ways in which teens are using their wisdom and strength to help each other and themselves through this complicated terrain around substance use.

This showing is open to all parents and guardians of students throughout the Dover-Sherborn school district. Following the documentary, there will be an opportunity for Q&A with experts in the field. SPAN-DS’s mission is to help teens and their families make safe and healthy choices.

If you have any questions or would like to become involved with SPAN-DS, please email us at, or reach out to
