FRN to host methamphetamine seminar in Elkins

The Randolph County America’s Promise Coalition and Family Resource Network will be hosting a community training on methamphetamine/clandestine lab awareness, safety and detection.

If you would like to attend this free training, please contact the FRN at 304-636-4454 before Sept. 19. The training will take place at the Woodford Church in Elkins on Sept. 24. Continuing Education Units are pending at this time, and space is limited.

This training has been designed to give providers and the general public an increased awareness of the basics of methamphetamine. The training will also address the history and production of meth as well as understanding the dangers of meth labs.

There are several methods of producing meth, all of which are dangerous to those producing the drug as well as those around it. Methamphetamine is a completely homemade drug. It is not a derivative from plants, only chemicals. During this session, participants will learn warning signs of a possible meth lab, as well as possible steps you should take if you suspect meth is being produced.

This training is provided by the Randolph County America’s Promise Coalition and funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center of Substance Abuse Prevention and the W.Va. Department of Health and Human Resources, Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities.
