Task Force members and organizations have been working together to address underage drinking and prescription drug misuse and abuse:
Pamlico High School has created a video on how to install a lock on cabinets to lock up alcohol in the home. Special thanks to Mr. Woodard and his students as well as Pamlico Hardware.
SAPHE youth were taught about prescription drug abuse, underage drinking, communication skills, and how “alcopops” are made at monthly retreats.
CCSAP performed Alcohol Retail Purchase Surveys to verify that stores and shops are properly carding youth for alcohol purchases. CDC reports that enhanced enforcement of ID laws is an effective strategy to reduce underage drinking.
Changing the Environment
CCSAP purchased a banner to remind the public about dropping off their unwanted, unused, and expired medicines at the bi-annual Operation Medicine Drop.
