This week, we wanted to encourage you to fill the space left behind by avoiding drugs with positive, healthy activities! Instead of drinking away difficult emotions, go for a walk in nature to recharge your soul! Instead of mellowing out with marijuana, take a long hot bath. There are plenty of ways to calm yourself or sooth troubles that don’t rely on harmful drugs. You can do this!

Celebrate and give thanks! We are so proud of you and all of your accomplishments this year! Look forward to 2020 and pave a way for your own best future!
Are you tempted to use marijuana? You may want to rethink that. Marijuana can have a variety of effects on young adults and adults alike. It can impair judgement, coordination, balance, mood, etc. It can also lead to dependence and addiction when misused. We hope that you’ll rethink any potential use of marijuana this week and do some research on its effects!
