More than 20 St. Ann students referred to NCDA for intervention since September
More than 20 students in St. Ann have been referred to the National Council on Drug Abuse, NCDA, for drug misuse intervention, since the start of the school year in September.
This was revealed by Substance Abuse Officer for St. Ann Nordia Henry.
She has expressed concern about the increase, which she says is abnormal.
Ms. Henry noted that the students were reportedly abusing substances such as molly.
She said with November being observed as Drug Awareness Month, several activities are planned to discourage drug use among youth.
Drug Awareness Month 2022 is being observed under the theme “Drug Free Lifestyle Trending”.
