We educate our kids about all kinds of things that hurt them
and yet they never hear about the dangers of the potentially
deadly “choking game.” This powerful training unveils the
damage caused by this activity and provides life-saving

“game,” we stand a much better chance of stopping it.
Drug abuse rates have been going down in all categories
including tobacco and alcohol. That is the good news. The
bad news is that Prescription and Over the Counter Medicine
abuse rates are through the roof. What brought us to this
point? What does the law say? Why are kids abusing these
potentially deadly substances? And, what can we do about it?
We need to shift our thinking when it comes to how we talk
about, use, monitor, and administer medicines to our
children. They may see medicines as a “safe” alternative to
illegal drug use. During this session, the trainer and
participants will look at how we can protect our kids from
the dangers of prescription and over the counter drug abuse.
The trainer will discuss how we may have gotten where we
are, and what we can do daily to take us closer to where we
want to be.

Issues surrounding probable cause and reasonable suspicion
are discussed. This training gives both the viewpoint of an
SRO and the viewpoint of an administrator in addressing
