Methamphetamine: Also Known as Speed, Meth, Crystal, Crank, and Sometimes Confusingly Called Ice

Methamphetamine production, distribution and use is a rapidly growing problem in many states and a major cause for the rise of crime in rural America. Meth presents two types of problems: 1) the usual impact of an illegal drug being brought in and distributed in a community, and 2) the unique dangers created by clandestine drug labs where meth is manufactured. This conference call will focus on the state of the meth problem in this country on both counts. Presenters will provide an overview of the problem, describe the unique challenges and opportunities created by clandestine drug labs, and identify promising collaborative models being developed across sectors not traditionally engaged in substance abuse prevention and treatment issues. Comprehensive, strategic, systems-change strategies will be explored to respond to this epidemic.

A Fork in the Road: The Path to Reducing Underage Drinking in Your Community

Community coalitions are concerned with underage drinking in their neighborhoods. Often times, they begin addressing issues wondering how to tackle the enormous problems communities face. Who’s responsible? What is our role? Why doesn’t positive change seem to happen? Presenters will provide information and tools that will get others to pay attention to the problem and to help make change happen. This broadcast emphasizes a shift in direction from an individual-oriented approach to environmentally-oriented community action . . . “the road less traveled”—a fork in the road!

Connecting the Dots: Coalitions as Partners in Treatment and Recovery

In building a coalition, relationships are everything! Across the nation, community coalitions are playing a major role in advocating for increasing screening and intervention in their health care systems. Coalitions will learn to develop strategies for building relationships with the treatment and recovery community. Participants will also learn how to assess treatment related community resources as well as financial, cultural, and other relevant factors that influence recovery. Ultimately, coalitions can become advocates to increase access to treatment and services in their community.

Coalitions Working with Substance Abuse in the Work-Place: The High Price of Doing Nothing

Substance abuse and addiction are problems that not only lurk close to home, but also loiter close to the workplace. The abuse of alcohol and other drugs has a negative impact on both employees and employers. Businesses can be major players in addressing the problem. Coalitions will learn to develop strategies that substantially increase the involvement of the business community. Ideally, community coalitions can assist businesses in developing and implementing drug-free workplaces.
