medicineSURGEON GENERAL RELEASES FIRST EVER REPORT ON ALCOHOL, DRUGS, AND HEALTH

In November, the Surgeon General released a report reviewing what we know about substance misuse and how the information can be used to to address substance abuse and related consequences. To review key findings or to download the full report, CLICK HERE.


TIE ONE ON FOR SAFETY CAMPAIGN!

CAST gave red ribbons to all cars parked in the student lot so the students could participate in this campaign to prevent drunk and drugged driving. The ribbons should be displayed between Thanksgiving and New Years, a period of time that includes some of the most dangerous days on the road. To get your free ribbon and a “virtual” ribbon which you can share on Facebook, and to learn more, CLICK HERE.



 
 

CAST is urging all households to purchase
a prescription medication lock box. Don¹t become an accidental drug dealer by allowing your children and visitors to your home to have access to potentially dangerous medications.  The vast majority of teens who abuse prescription drugs do so using the drugs they find in the medicine cabinets of their families, friends, and grandparents.
Lock Your Meds Today, and Help Us Have a Safer Tomorrow!
