Working together for a drug free community

Get Involved

- Talk to your children or grandchildren about NOT using alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs (including abusing prescription medication).

- Being careful not to give unintentional messages to children when it comes to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (including abusing prescription medication).

- Monitoring social networking sites.  It is not always about what your child might be posting or tweeting.  Sometimes it is their “friends” or “followers” that you need to watch out for.

- Dispose of Rx medication properly at the Alton Police Department in the medication drop box located in the lobby.  If you have medications that need to keep on hand contact DFA or the Alton Police Department for a free locking cap. 

- Report underage drinking parties and suspicious behaviors to either the Madison County Sheriff’s Department Anonymous Tip Line at 618-296-3000. 

- Understand the Social Host Law.
