REDUCE SUBSTANCE ABUSE among youth,
PROMOTE POSITIVE CHOICES, and
STRENGTHEN FAMILIES through the collaborative efforts of our drug-free community coalition.
Using the proven CTC method, we work together with our community partners to seek out or develop programs to combat what we identify as the highest contributing factors towards SUBSTANCE ABUSE in our community.
RX COLLECTION: Did you know that medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning? Just as disturbing, are the alarmingly high rates of prescription drug abuse among teens. A National study, conducted last year by The Partnership at Drugfree.org and the MetLife Foundation, found that 49% of teens who misuse or abuse prescription medicines get them from a family member or friend. More often than not, these drugs are found in our medicine cabinets.
Collection boxes have been set up in our area for safe disposal of unwanted or expired prescription drugs. Click here for a list of the locations.
