To address the current drug problem, Chautauqua Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Council (CASAC) is offering this training at no charge to the community. Registration fee for those outside Chautauqua County: $30.00.

A community joining together to tackle this problem is crucial in our efforts to keep our youth drug free. The power of the parent and other positive adult relationships is a potent force in prevention and it is greatly underutilized. Be aware, be knowledgeable and be prepared!
