The East Feliciana Drug Council was started in December 2010.
Drug Council Members consist of individuals representing 12 sectors related to the Drug Free Communities Coalitions of America. These sectors are: Student, Parent, Religious Serving Organization, Civic Organization, School, Business, Youth Serving Organization, Law Enforcement, Media, Healthcare, State, Local or Tribal Agency, and other organizations involved in reducing substance abuse.
Participation in community activities include organization of Town Hall Meetings, implementing prescription drug take back events and substance abuse prevention education which will lead to attainment of certification or licensure in the field of prevention.
Our new Prescription Drop Boxes are strategically placed in Clinton, Slaughter, Wilson, Norwood and Jackson.
Areas of focus for the year will include continued educational opportunities for residents within the parish, education on prescription drug misuse and abuse, decreasing alcohol usage amoung the youth and educating alcohol outlet vendors on proper ID checks for under age individuals trying to purchase alcohol. There will also be sobriety check points set-up throughout the parish.
