MEXICO, NY – A free event will be held April 28 at 6:30 p.m. at The Eis House, Mexico.
The community is invited to celebrate success.
The Coalition to Combat Adolescent Substance Abuse was formed to address the high level of adolescent substance abuse concerns in Oswego County.
Join the group to find out what the coalition has been doing and its visions for the future.
Education and awareness is valued as a very important factor in preventing drug addiction.
Almost 70% of teens surveyed in Oswego County reported that they have used alcohol, tobacco and/or marijuana before age 15.
Studies show that people who use these substances before the age of 15 are much more likely to experience a problem with addiction in their future.
Community members are urged to join the coalition, to help take action to make Oswego County a Drug Free Community.
For information on the coalition, substance abuse, addiction and/or synthetic drugs, contact Penny Morley, prevention director of Farnham Family Services at (315) 342-4489.
