Prescription Drug Abuse

Prescription drug abuse has increased in recent years, especially among youth. The ONDCP released a Super Bowl ad back in January highlighting this topic as part of their Anti-Drug advertising campaign.

CAAT would like to share that this evening (April 28) our local Channel 4 will have a segment on prescription drug abuse by kids at 10 p.m. MT.

Tune in and drop us a line with your comments on this use in our community.

Red Ribbon Week 2007

You may already know that Red Ribbon Week (RRW) is a nation-wide initiative of prevention and education about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. You may already know that RRW is the most far-reaching and well-known drug prevention event in America. What you may have missed is the official proclamations of RRW in our local community.

The first was at the October 9 Adams 50 School Board Meeting.
The second was at the October 22 Westminster City Council Meeting.
