Anti-Drug Week @ Beach Middle School & South Meadows Elementary School
Oct 22 – Oct 26 all-day

img_6308SRSLY will be visiting classrooms at Beach Middle School & South Meadows Elementary School during National Red Ribbon Week to ask Chelsea kids to think about the things in their lives that help them stay drug-free. An “anti-drug” can be anything – something you do for fun, someone you care about, a goal you are working towards, or knowledge of how drugs hurt your body, mind, and life. Using any form of media, students answer the question “What’s Your Anti-Drug?”

The Anti-Drug Media Contest spreads the message that kids in Chelsea have many positive activities and influences in their lives that help them stay away from drugs. Their anti-drug posters, poems, videos, and stories tell the community that they have way too many good things going for them and don’t need to use drugs or alcohol.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day @ Chelsea Retirement Community
Oct 27 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea hospital has partnered with the Chelsea Police Department, the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research, and Chelsea Retirement Community to bring this event to Chelsea.

Do you have unused medications lying around at home? You are the first line of defense against medicine abuse! Most teens who abuse medicine say they get it from friends or family medicine cabinets. Do not flush any medicines! Dispose of your unused medications safely, without impacting our drinking water, by dropping them off on Take-Back Day.
