FHS SADD Chapter founded

Advocatepress.com reports on the new SADD Chapter started at Flora High School in Illinois.
At the October meeting of the Coalition Against Drug Abuse of Clay County (CADA) it was learned that a new Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Organization was started at Flora High School.

SADD is a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide.

As part of the strategic plan that has been adopted by CADA, one of the strategies to reduce the number of youths drinking alcohol is to start SADD chapters in each of the schools in Clay County. FHS teacher and coach Scott Warren has stepped up to the plate and will be the sponsor.

Two organizational meetings have been held and plans are being made to make an impact on student perceptions of youth attitudes about alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use.
