As a commitment to a preventative approach to the growing drug abuse issue, the Greater St. Louis Area Council Boy Scouts of America has collaborated with educators from SIUE School of Pharmacy and the Meridian Society to develop and implement a drugs of abuse prevention program. GSLAC offers this program to Scouts in the preferred grades of 6th to 8th grade. (This program can be utilized for older Scouts but due to nature of the material, it will cover it at an age appropriate level.) The modules are completed on line at http://siuecoepe.org. Upon completion of the program, the Scout will be able to order this patch showing that the program has been completed.
