Students Take A STAAND Against Prescription Drug Abuse

Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County’s youth action team Students Taking Action Against Negative Decisions (STAAND) will be participating in National Drug Facts Week next week. The STAAND groups in Fond du Lac, North Fond du Lac and Ripon along with Fond du Lac middle schools will be spreading awareness about prescription drug abuse. Five percent of Fond du Lac School District 8th, 10th and 11th grade students surveyed last year reported using prescription medications that were not prescribed to them within 30 days of when they were surveyed.
