Drug Prevention Programs to Start October 27 at Comfort Schools

The drug problem in the U.S. has changed over the last few years and has become a real threat to our society, especially our youth. High potency Marijuana is causing serious brain damage including depression, psychosis and suicidal thoughts including death. Fentanyl is being found in all types of opioid drugs and is largely responsible for a 32% increase in overdose deaths in Texas last year.

It is time to increase our awareness and understand how to deal with this growing problem. Drug prevention presentations are scheduled to start Wednesday October 27 with a program for parents of CISD students. The parent meeting will take place from 6 PM to 7 PM at the Comfort High School. This will be followed by a student drug prevention program on October 28 for grades 6-12.

The featured speakers will be Sargent Kevin Klaerner form the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office and Rick Goodrich, special agent with the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Following the school programs a community program will be offered on November 5 in the Comfort Park Pavilion at 6PM.
