What is Drug Free Clubs of America (Drug Free ME)
A STUDENT LED drug prevention program that gives students an opportunity TO EARN REWARDS AT SCHOOL AND IN THE COMMUNITY FOR BEING DRUG FREE! With parent’s consent, students volunteer to take a confidential drug test at school. Throughout the year, students can be randomly selected to test up to 5 additional times. The possibility of being drug tested at any time protects teens that find themselves in drug-related situations, and empowers DFCA members to say, "I can't. I might get tested." This alone has the potential to stop peer pressure in its tracks. DFCA does not share test results with the school, which allows parents to focus on drugs as a threat to their child's health instead of worrying about their reputation.
Both Genesis Hospital and Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center provide collectors free of charge for the program. They provide staff that collects the initial and random samples throughout the year for students to prove they are drug free. Thank you to both organizations for your partnership!
