December is annually designated as National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month (often referred to as 3D Month). Every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 48 minutes, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Join the Army Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) at Strough Auditorium, Bldg. 610, for the 3D Month Kick-Off event on December 7!
A special guest speaker from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) will share a personal story as a way to help others understand the impact of drunk driving on a personal level.
This special guest from MADD will speak from 9-10 a.m. MADD will present their Power of Parents Educational Workshop, designed to help parents and caregivers with preventing early alcohol use. Don't miss the helpful information and parent handbook, which provides tips and conversation tools to talk to “'tweens” and teens about alcohol use.
There will be two sessions for the Power of Parents Workshops. Session one will be held from 10:10 a.m. – 11 a.m.; session two will be held from 11:10 a.m. – noon.
